Stuffed Dates

Skip the heavy holiday hams and roasts. If you’re cruising over the holidays, switch it up. Plan a festive champagne brunch for the holiday celebrations. Try these stuffed dates along with some champagne on ice. Not a fig fan? You can substitute figs or apricots instead.


10 pitted dates, halved (or dried figs and apricot)
4 oz. ricotta cheese
1 tsp. orange juice
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup nuts, crushed
Pinch of sea salt


Mix ricotta with orange juice and vanilla. Fill the center of each date with ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with nuts and sea salt. Chill until ready to serve.
