So, what is prosciutto?

 

Prosciutto is an uncooked, unsmoked, dry-cured Italian ham. This heavily salted meat is generally sliced thin and eaten as a starter dish or as an appetizer before a meal.

You’ll only need to gather together a few ingredients to make this simple finger-food appetizer.

 

 

Ingredients:

 

12 slices Prosciutto
4 oz goat cheese
4 oz ricotta cheese
3 tbsp heavy cream
2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
salt & pepper

 

Optional:

chopped pistachios for garnish

 

Recipe How-To

 

Pre-heat your oven to 375°F. Spray a mini muffin tray with non-stick cooking spray then set it aside.

 

 

 

Slice the prociutto in half lengthwise to make 24 long, thin strips.

 

Take one strip of prosciutto and place it across an empty muffin cup, with the middle of the strip over the mid-point of the cup.

 

Press the center of the prosciutto strip into the bottom of the cup. Carefully fold and wrap one end of the prosciutto around one interior side of the cup until it overlaps the prosciutto on the opposite side. Repeat with the opposite side of the prosciutto so that the exposed areas of the muffin cup are covered to form a “basket.” Repeat process with the remaining 23 muffin cups.

 

Bake for 9-10 minutes. You’ll want to closely watch while the “baskets” bake so they don’t overcook. The edges of the prosciutto will start to brown when ready.

 

While baking, combine your goat cheese, ricotta cheese, heavy cream, and thyme leaves in a medium bowl. Season with salt & black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine then set aside.

 

Remove the muffin tray from the oven and cool for several minutes before transferring each prosciutto basket to a plate lined with paper towels.

 

Flip each basket after a few minutes and blot carefully to remove the excess grease. When done, transfer the prosciutto cups to a serving platter.

 

Transfer the cheese mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a tip. No pastry bag? Fill a sandwich baggie with the cheese mixture and snip one corner of the baggie to create your own pastry bag.

 

Carefully pipe the goat cheese mixture into each prosciutto cup.
If desired, top each cup with chopped pistachios and serve.
