This may be one of the world’s easiest appetizer recipes. An oldie, but a goodie in our home. Pre-baby dinner-in resulted in a highly orchestrated meal. We did it right let me tell you. Multiple appetizers, wine in glasses, music on and general bliss as we talked about our day, joked and cooked dinner together. It was truly an evening affair. Post-baby, goes a little like this: Feed baby dinner, which now-a-days ever since baby has learned the fabulous art of raspberries consists of blowing pretty much half of the food that enters her mouth back out on me; immediately dunk baby in bath to further the destruction of the baby food which is wedged up her nose holes and in her ears; dry and dress baby for bed, which turns into a wrestling match now that baby is rolling and hates clothing after a bath; feed baby bottle and rock baby to bed… who is hungry?
Pretty much any simple recipe I had pre-baby has made the cut… no, survived the new madness. Kind of like us!
Why I like this recipe? You get the salty from the prosciutto, the creaminess from the Mozzarella, the kick from the basil and the sweet from the balsamic and now a blogger who sounds like Giada De Laurentiis.
- 1 – Package of Sliced Prosciutto
- 1 – Ball of Mozzarella
- Fresh Basil Leaves
- Balsamic Vinegar to taste
Slice the prosciutto slices into long strips and set aside. You will use the strips to wrap the ingredients and hold everything together. Slice the Mozzarella Ball into bite-sized strips. Assemble by gathering a Mozzarella slice and a piece of basil. Wrap the ingredients with the strip of prosciutto. Drizzle your favorite balsamic vinegar across the bites and voilà, there you have it! Enjoy!
