Prosciutto di Parma Wrapped Peaches
Summertime means fresh fruit and creative ways to incorporate it into every meal. That’s why these Prosciutto di Parma Wrapped Peaches capture the essence of the season into a simple (and healthy) prosciutto appetizer. The combination of savory Prosciutto di Parma and flavorful goat cheese, and the addition of fresh basil makes these bites one of a kind. Give this prosciutto appetizer even more delicious depth by grilling the peaches for a few minutes before wrapping them to achieve a smoky flavor. Pair with a bubbly Prosecco or light wheat beer and enjoy these bites al fresco in the summer heat.
- 2 peaches
- 12 sprigs basil
- 3 ounces goat cheese
- 6 slices Prosciutto di Parma
Cut each peach into 6 wedges; set aside.
Cut each slice of Prosciutto di Parma in half, crosswise, so you now have 12 smaller slices.
Place a peach slice on top of a prosciutto slice. Add about half a teaspoon of goat cheese in the center of the peach, then top with a basil leaf. Wrap peach, goat cheese and basil with prosciutto.
Repeat with remaining ingredients.
