How to make Bruschetta with Date Cream, Brie & Prosciutto

  • If needed, preheat the oven for baking the ciabatta according to the instructions on the package.
  • Remove the seeds from the dates and cut the dates in half for easier processing.
  • Add the cream cheese, crème fraîche, dates, and maple syrup to a bowl and mix well until the mixture is smooth.
  • 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.
  • Cut off the ends of the ciabatta. Then proceed to cut the ciabatta crosswise, in slices of about 3 centimeters (or about an inch).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Rub the toasted ciabatta with the inner part of the raw garlic.
  • Spread a somewhat thin layer of the date cream on the toasted ciabatta.
  • Lay a slice of brie on top of the date cream layer.
  • 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.
  • 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!
