4 oz. of Gouda cheese
16 pitted prunes

You will also need:
-16 short thin bamboo skewers or wooden toothpicks.
- Vegetable grilling grate (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat grill to high

1. Cut the cheese into small rectangular batons to fit inside the prunes. Stuff each prune with a piece of cheese.
2. Cut each strip of bacon crosswise into 4 pieces; each piece should be just large enough to wrap a prune. Wrap each prune in bacon and secure with a bamboo skewer or toothpick through the side to resemble a "hammer".
3. When ready to cook, arrange the prunes on the hot grill (or alternatively, on a vegetable grilling grate so the prunes don't fall through the spaces in the grate) and grill, turning once with tongs, until the bacon is crisp and the cheese is melted, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
