F Savings With Sadie: PROSCIUTTO TOASTIES

Tuesday

PROSCIUTTO TOASTIES

Yummy.  A neighbor shared this recipe and it is delicious.  A big hit, not complicated and looks very nice.

1 loaf VERY THIN SLICED Pepperidge Farm sandwich bread
3/4 cup unsalted butter (11/2 sticks) -- softened
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
2 tablespoons snipped chives or green onion tops
1 teaspoon snipped thyme leaves, or 1/8 teaspoon dried
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto - Citterio fresco brand (Harris Teeter or Costco)

  • Cut crusts of bread; reserve for another use.
  • Combine butter and herbs.
  • Spread butter mixture on 1 side of each slice of bread.
  • Top with a single layer of prosciutto cut to fit; roll into a tight cylinder on the diagonal starting at one corner; secure with a wooden toothpick.
  • Place in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  • After completing all the roll ups, spread remaining butter mixture on tops. (May be made ahead to this point and refrigerated, covered, several hours or overnight.)
  • Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven until nicely browned, 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Twist and remove toothpicks to serve warm or at room temperature.

NOTE: Separate Citterio slices and leave on separator paper; trim fat with scissors and cut in half crosswise to fit bread.

Serving Size:  24 pieces

  1. Oh, fresh crusty bread, especially if its home made, a chunk of mature cheddar, a few slices of sorrano ham or prosciutto and a glass of Rioja reserva and its goodnight Vienna - I'm gone. Great mixture. In Spain, it is so difficult to achieve such luxury.
