Walnut & Parmesan Stuffed Dates

Easter is in one week and if you’re celebrating you may be thinking of appetizers to serve. Back at Christmas time (as evidenced by the festive table cloth) I made walnut & parmesan stuffed dates after seeing Williams Sonoma post a video on Instagram. They looked so easy to make and yummy. Spoiler alert – both were true.

For the recipe you’ll need:

  • dates, preferably Medjool
  • olive oil
  • parmigiano-reggiano cheese
  • walnuts

The appoint of each depends on how many you want to make. The Williams Sonoma recipe is based off of 24 dates, but I didn’t make that many.

The recipe is super simple. All you have to do is pit the dates, then toss the dates in a bowl with olive oil to coat. Then place the dates on a sheet pan, slit side up. Use a vegetable peeler to shave some cheese. Next, stuff each date with some cheese shavings and a walnut or walnut half depending on the size of the date and nut.

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until the dates are warmed through. Do a final drizzle of olive oil and serve!

These are seriously so yummy especially when warm. I think the only change I would make next time I make them is to add a little bit more cheese to balance out the sweetness of the date. It’s all personal preference though.

Now I need more things to stuff dates with! Let me know if you have any stuffed dates favorites!
