How to make Bruschetta with Date Cream, Brie & Prosciutto

  1. If needed, preheat the oven for baking the ciabatta according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Remove the seeds from the dates and cut the dates in half for easier processing.
  3. Add the cream cheese, crème fraîche, dates, and maple syrup to a bowl and mix well until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Cut the brie in slices that are roughly the diameter of your bread in width and about one centimeter (or just a little under half an inch) thick. Set aside in the fridge so that it doesn’t all melt and stick together.
  5. Cut off the ends of the ciabatta. Then proceed to cut the ciabatta crosswise, in slices of about 3 centimeters (or about an inch).
  6. Drizzle some olive oil over one side of your ciabatta slices before putting them on the grill. Grill a couple at a time until they are nice and crispy and have grill marks on them.
  7. Grab your clove of garlic and trim off the root. Crush the garlic with a knife and peel off the outer layer. Cut the clove in half, lengthwise.
  8. Rub the toasted ciabatta with the inner part of the raw garlic.
  9. Spread a somewhat thin layer of the date cream on the toasted ciabatta.
  10. Lay a slice of brie on top of the date cream layer.
  11. Take a slice of prosciutto and cut it in half, crosswise. Casually fold the pieces of prosciutto to create some depth and place them on top of the brie.
  12. Finish off with a generous amount of ground black pepper. Enjoy & try not to keep them all to yourself!

and if someone is not into dates, one could always use a little honey-mustard dressing instead of the dates-cream. Yummie as well!
