Whipped Goat Cheese Stuffed Plum Recipe
If you tried my Honey Lavender Whipped Goat Cheese and loved it, you’re definitely going to love this stuffed plum recipe!
When hosting a dinner party or bringing an appetizer to a friend’s house, it’s really easy to fall into the funk of always bringing the same thing.
We have all been the victim of this—at least, I know I have! It’s so easy to develop a favorite “go-to recipe” and always resort to bringing the same thing to a party.
This Orzo Pasta Salad With Garlic Butter Shrimp has been my go-to recipe for a long time.
This is the moment we put those days behind us because this stuffed plum recipe will leave you impressing that summer crowd…or a group of 50 or less in three super-simple steps!
Ingredients For Whipped Goat Cheese Stuffed Plums
This is one of those recipes that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients and comes together super quick.
It’s one of my favorite things to make in a pinch when I’m in a rush and need something that is both delicious and easy to put together.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this tasty appetizer:
- thinly sliced prosciutto
- goat cheese
- whipped cream cheese
- vanilla extract
- fresh thyme
- fresh plums
I highly suggest you visit your neighborhood Sprouts to grab the ingredients for this recipe, too!
*You can find the full list of ingredients and proper measurements in the recipe card below!
How To Make Stuffed Plums
1. Cook the prosciutto. Preheat your oven to 400° F and arrange the prosciutto in a single layer on a foiled baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until crispy, flipping halfway through. When finished, remove from the oven and allow to cool before finely chopping.
2. Make the whipped goat cheese. While the prosciutto is in the oven, add goat cheese, vanilla extract, thyme, garlic, pepper, and lemon zest to a food processor and mix on high speed for about two minutes until all ingredients are fully combined, scraping down the sides as necessary.
3. Stuff the plums. Spoon the whipped goat cheese into each plum and top with prosciutto crumbles. You can drizzle a balsamic glaze over them if you like. I highly recommend it!
PRO TIP: Sprout’s produce section offers such a wide variety of high-quality Summer stone fruit that is always fresh and never disappoints.
So, if plums aren’t your style or the flavor you are searching for, you can easily substitute with apricots!
Health Benefits of Plums
Plums are one of my favorite stone fruits because of all the health benefits they offer! In my foodie opinion, plums are a “superfood” despite not actually being classified as one.
- Plums contain many nutrients and vitamins like Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Vitamin C, A, K, and more!
- They are rich in antioxidants!
- Plums/prunes may relieve constipation and improve your digestive health.
- Overtime, plums may help lower your blood sugar.
- They may promote bone health.
- Plums/prunes may benefit your overall heart health.
PRO TIP: If you are looking for an easy way to boost your immune system, stone fruit is an essential part of supporting a healthy immune system!
Types of Plums
Did you know there are about 40 different types of plums?! Plums have been around for a long time, which means we has humans have had a long time to grow a variety of plums. However,
- Blackamber: This is probably the most popular plum. These plums have a dark purple skin and a light yellow inside.
- Damson: These plums are also purple-skinned, but are slightly more tart. This makes them the perfect plum for baking or making jam.
- Greenage (or Reine Claude): This plum is small and bright greenish-yellow. It is super-sweet and harder to come across.
- Mirabelle: This is a small yellow plum that is also super sweet.
- Satsuma: This plum has red skin and a bright red inside.
- Prunes: Prunes. A prune is just a dried plum. They have a tendency to be known for their laxative properties because they are packed with fiber and sorbitol (sugar alcohol).
You can use any type of plum in this recipe, but I used black plums for mine.
Pro-Tip: Did you know many of the stone fruits (like plums) sold at Sprouts are grown on family-owned farms! How awesome is that?!
Questions You May Have About The Recipe
I don’t love plums, what can I substitute with?
If plums aren’t your vibe or flavor, I highly recommend apricots or figs as the perfect substitute.
Help! I don’t have time to make prosciutto!
If you don’t have time to make prosciutto, you could sub with bacon bits or vegan bacon crumbles.
You will lose some of the texture and flavor, however, this works if you are in a time crunch.
What other cheese can I use?
Ricotta cheese or feta cheese work as great substitutes for Goat Cheese!
