Prunes stuffed with Goats Cheese, wrapped in Parma Ham

Stuck for canape-spiration?

Bored of the standard blinis and pigs in blankets? No? Oh alright, me neither, but it is nice to have a little variation… don’t cha think?

I bring out this recipe quite a bit for my catering jobs and cooking classes because it always goes down so well. If you aren’t a fan of goats cheese (or prunes) then don’t worry because the technique it lends itself to other dried fruit and cheesey combinations too. So far the others I have tried are…

  • Smokey Black Forest Ham, medjool dates and Mature Cheddar
  • Prunes, Gorgonzola, Bacon


  • 30-50g Hard Goats Cheese
  • 12 large pitted Prunes
  • 6 rashers Parma Ham
  • Balsamic Glaze, for drizzling


Preheat your grill to a high heat and position a rack just under it.

Crumble the goats cheese into little pieces.

Make a little incision in each prune, the stuff with the cheese.

Halve each slice of parma ham and roll it up around the stuffed prune.

Grill for a couple of minutes on each side.

Enjoy warm. Drizzle with a little balsamic glaze (if you fancy)
