Truffled Grissini

Number of servings (yield): 6
Recipe Level: Intermediate

Prosciutto grissini is a simple yet elegant way to incorporate a prosciutto appetizer into your next dinner party. The creamy prosciutto-wrapped breadsticks will turn a dull cheese plate into an extraordinary surprise for all of your guests – they’ll surely be asking for the recipe. Try a smooth Sauternes Bordeaux wine with this prosciutto appetizer to balance sweetness and saltiness or try a heavier stout beer to compliment the truffle butter and prosciutto.

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon white truffle oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 6 grissini (long, thin breadsticks)
  • 6 thin slices Prosciutto di Parma

Combine butter and truffle oil in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread cheese on a plate. With a butter knife, spread each grissini with the butter mixture 3/4 of the way up. Roll each stick in the cheese to coat.

Wrap each with a slice of prosciutto. Serve immediately.
