Stuffed Dates with Goat Cheese and Toasted Coconuts

1.00

Stuffed dates have been around for years but so has wrapping them in bacon. This version is stuffed with cheese, yes the classic, but finished with toasted coconut for a hint of the tropics. Since the coconut is unsweetened, it pairs nicely with the sweet date and creamy goat. I think you will find that even the kiddos will love them!

Yield: 12 dates

2 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut

2-ounces goat cheese

Method:

1.   In a small sauté pan over medium heat, toast coconut until lightly golden in color, approximately 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate or bowl to cool.

2.   Meanwhile, using a sharp knife make a slit halfway through each date (lengthwise) and remove the pit. Using a spoon, stuff each date with a small amount of goat cheese followed by toasted coconuts.

3.   Best served at room temperature.
