I have no words.
None.
Shocking, I know, but words take too long.

super simple

You should already be making these.
For real, do I need to tell you how amazing meat-wrapped cheese is?

Nope.

So…

Baked Prosciutto-Wrapped Goat Cheese (makes 7)

Ingredients:
4 oz thinly sliced prosciutto (but not so thin it has holes. see note 1 below)
6 oz soft goat cheese
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
  2. In a bowl combine the cheese, herbs and lemon juice.
  3. Lay the slices of prosciutto out and spread a thin layer of the cheese mixture gently on top of each slice of meat. (Your fingers work as a great tool for spreading here. Just be sure they’re clean.)
  4. Fold the short sides of the prosciutto over as shown above in the picture. Then starting at one end, roll the prosciutto length-wise as you would a burrito. Roll each slice.
  5. Place the rolls on the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove. Let cool and crisp. Enjoy!

Notes:

  1. Some of the slices of prosciutto I used had holes and the cheese oozed out while baking. Still delicious but sort of messy. Go for the un-torn slices.
  2. You can really play with the filling here. Add different herbs or whatever you’d like. Use a different cheese. Make it how you like it.
  3. 4 oz of prosciutto was 7 slices for me. This will vary.
  4. Jon helped with this photo shoot…guess which prop he picked.
