Stuffed Strawberries & Figs

Chevre Stuffed Strawberries

We had a potluck cocktail party to go to yesterday so I brought one of my favorite go to appetizers to share! 

These are SO very tasty but also very easy to make which is my kind of appetizer! 

What you need
  • 1 lb of Fresh Strawberries - ideally local grown organic cause they are so sweet
  • Medjool dates
  • 1 small package of Chevre Goat Cheese - original flavor 
  • Pecans enough for each strawberry
  • Romaine lettuce for garnish optional  
What you do
  •  Rinse and core your berries and than cut an X in the top about half way down the berry to create a little crevice. 
  • Split the date length wise and pull out pit the date if not already done
  • Stuff the crevice carefully with the Chevre careful not to 'split' the berry but if it does you can usually use the cheese as 'glue' to keep it together.
  • Top with a pecan half ... if you want an extra sinful treat use a 'candied pecan' or leave some plain for those who do not care for nuts.
  • Place on a serving plate and watch them fly off at your gathering.
They also make a great snack on a smaller scale ~ the daycare kids love stuffed berries and figs! 

Our preferred date for 'stuffing'

Chevre ~ Goat's Milk Cheese

 What is YOUR go to appetizer for social gatherings?

Have an amazing day!
Life well, Laugh Much, Love Often
