- 2 rashers of streaky bacon
- 10-12 large pitted prunes
- 60g crumbly blue cheese, such as Daylesford blue
There is nothing like a warm canapé during Christmas celebrations – be it a classic honey and mustard glazed cocktail sausage or these melt in the mouth, flavourful bites. Easy to prepare and simply needing a minute or two in the oven, they never fail to please.
Don’t be too worried about plating; try serving in a shallow bowl with cocktail sticks arranged neatly to one side.
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
Fry the bacon rashers until nice and crispy and set aside to cool. Once cool, transfer to a food processor and blitz until you get a coarse crumb. Set aside.
Select the roundest, plumpest prunes from your packet and make a small incision in the top. Stuff with blue cheese and seal the top of the prune as much as possible. Transfer to a lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes until the cheese is just beginning to melt.
Scatter the tops with the bacon crumb, transfer to a bowl and serve warm.
