There’s no grilling mistake greater than limiting the hors d’oeuvres to potato chips and pork rinds. Think about it: The best-tasting food in the world comes from a grill. And yours is already fired-up and ready to cook. If you’re not using it to it’s full potential, then you’re missing an opportunity.
So here’s a recipe to help you make good by the grill. The components are refreshingly simple; you need only dates, nuts, cheese, prosciutto, and something to hold them all together. Wooden skewers are best, but toothpicks make a close second. The payoff is a hit of honeyed sweetness from the hot dates balanced with crisp pork and the savory duo of cheese and nuts. It’s a nutritional powerhouse that’s guaranteed to impress a crowd of hungry friends.
Stuffed and Wrapped Dates
What you’ll need:Wooden skewers or toothpicks
Dates

How to make it:1. Slice each date lengthwise to make a pocket. Spread it open, stuff in a pecan, and fill the remaining space with a small spoonful of goat cheese. Wrap the entire thing twice around with prosciutto.
2. Drive the skewer through the date, twisting slowly to work through the pecan.
3. Place the dates on the hot grill and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Flip and cook another 2 or 3 and serve when the prosciutto is crispy.
