Prosciutto Wrapped Goat Cheese with honey. Well, as you can imagine just by saying the name, you can tell this is a very tasty appetizer.
Prosciutto appetizers are always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Everyone loves its buttery, salty flavor and combined with the honey-drenched chévre you’re in for a treat. So easy to make and the result is more of an art than following a recipe.
What is chévre?
“Covering a wide range of cheeses, Chèvre, or fromage de chèvre, describes a proud and bold approach to making artisanal French goats’ cheese”. Find out more HERE…
Not to fond of chévre?
Chévre is not for everybody, I know, but there are different types of different strength of the goat cheese taste. I did use one rolled in herbs with a milder taste.
However, if you would like to exchange the chévre to something else I would suggest something like any kind of brie cheese, like Brie de maux.
What is prosciutto?
This salt-cured thinly sliced ham from Italy is naturally salty, sweet and completely irresistible!
“The word prosciutto, which translates to “ham” in Italian, is made only from the hind legs of pigs and is aged during a dry-curing process. There are typically two types of prosciutto: prosciutto cotto, which is cooked, and prosciutto crudo, which is uncooked, yet cured.” Read all about it here:
How many d’oeuvres to serve at a party?
It’s always difficult to calculate how many. But a thumb of rule:
2-4 Hors d’oeuvre per person served half an hour before dinner
Then again, it’s a good idea to mix a couple of different appetizers, specially if you are a larger party.
