Stuffed Prunes

The missus, (I think we’ll call her Carol from now on) came back from the local garage with two packets of prunes reduced to 10p.¬† Ooh, Tagine or stuffed pork I thought. Well that is still a possibility, but as I had a goat’s cheese festering away in the fridge and my co blogger Frank was coming round, I thought I’d carry on the goats cheese challenge we set each other.

So stuffed prunes it was to be. So each prune had a pocket where the stone used to be and into each cavity I inserted a little goats cheese.

I did this to about 30 or so prunes, It didn’t take that long. Also in my fridge was a packet of Serrano ham. I’d used it in the last couple of recipes and had a few slices left over, so I decided to wrap the little prunes with the ham.

These were all put onto a baking tray and cooked in a medium oven at 170C or so for about 5 minutes, that’s all it takes and they were ready.

Well, with a few drinkypoos inside us, they were a real treat and didn’t last that long in the dish. Frank, usually the most Gentlemanly of gentlemen even pounced on the last one as they were very moreish.

Now the verdict. If I were to do them again. I would swap the goats cheese for a punchy blue, like a Stilton or a Gorgonzola. Also instead of the Serrano ham, I would go for a good quality streaky bacon .

Well that’s the quickest post I’ve done so far, which gives me plenty of time to think about the rest of the prunes I have and how to use them. Watch this space
