Prosciutto Wraps - A Guest Post

Here is another wonderful recipe from Kate. Prosciutto Wraps are super easy to make and look delicious! I'm keeping this one on the radar for when I need an appetizer!

In my last introduction for Kate, I forgot to mention one very important and interesting fact: Last year, she graduated from the French Culinary Institute in New York City! She's presently working in food product development for a company in Pennsylvania. She commutes from her beach town home in New Jersey and is constantly coming up with great ideas for getting her real passion-opening her own restaurant-off the ground!

While she's pursuing her passion, I'm pursuing mine...trying to come up with any and every reason possible to get her back to Texas! :)

Prosciutto Wraps

Here's what you'll need:

Roasted Red Peppers (canned, unless you are feeling adventurous and want to roast your own)
Wet Mozzarella
Fresh Basil
Prosciutto (from the deli, ask for thin slice)

Follow the directions in the pictures!!!

Cut the prosciutto into quarters, cut the roasted red peppers into strips the same width as the prosciutto, and cut the mozzarella balls so they are roughly the same width as the prosciutto and peppers. (I just cut the small balls in half.) Tear the basil so it is about the same size as the mozzarella ball. Layer all of the ingredients and wrap it up!

Secure the rolls with toothpicks and serve! Easy and delicious!

One of the best things about this appetizer is that you can make as many or as few as you need! Give them a try at your next party, they're sure to be a hit!

So cute and no cooking! I'll have to remember this one.

I don't like peppers, but the rest would be yummy by itself! I love prosciutto and fresh mozza, so anything that can combine them is a hit in my book! Thanks, Kate!
