Dates stuffed with foie gras and sprinkled with pretzels. Because first impressions are important. And because Betony left me wanting more salty-sweet-rich goodness after their Foie Gras bonbons. These hors d'oeuvres scream SPECIAL OCCASION, and a month of holiday parties are what makes the holiday season so darn special.
There are a million variations on this. You can stuff prunes instead of dates. Or stuff with goat cheese instead of foie gras. You can also leave off the pretzel crumble and throw on some sea salt.
- Foie Gras (Recommend using one from D'Artagnan like this)
- 8 Dates
- 5 Hard Pretzel Sticks
- Slice each date lengthwise and remove the pit.
