Prosciutto and Cheese Bites

Prosciutto and Cheese Bites

It’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been on a vacation, traveling through the SE Asia. I had an interesting, exciting and delicious adventure, and soon I will tell you all about it.

It was nice to go away, and it is sure nice to come back home again :)

Prosciutto and Cheese Bites

(recipe adapted from Sale & Pepe magazine, Serbian issue for January/February 2008)

1 spring onion (only the white part)
4 fresh sage leaves
3-4 chives leaves
250 g cream cheese
30 g pine nuts
2 Tbsp white wine
30 g grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
prosciutto slices

Finely chop spring onion, sage and chives. Add cream cheese, chopped pine nuts, wine, Parmesan and season with salt and pepper to taste. Shape into small balls, wrap each into a piece of prosciutto, place a small sage leaf on top and pin with a tooth pick.

    Marija, dobro došla. Baš sam se pitala što te nema tako dugo. SIgurno da ćeš imati puno toga da nam preneseš i obogatiš naše kuhinje. I ja sam spazila ove loptice iz časopisa i stoje zalepljene u mojoj svesci kao fantastična ideja!

    The cheese bites looks delish!

    Ja sam te pomalo pratila na putešestviju, i znam da se se zaželela poznate hrane. Dobro nam se vratila:)
    Ovakve zalogajčiće obožavam – svaki sastojak dopunjava onaj drugi.
    Jedva čekam da napišeš reportažu, mada pretpostavljam da će morati da bude iz nekoliko nastavaka – takvo putovanje ne može da se smesti u jedan esej:)

  • Monika January 27, 2011 3:28 pm

    Dobro došla nazad! Jedva čekam putopis ;)

    Interesantan Blog ne kao i drugi!

  • Jessy April 29, 2011 3:03 am

    Yum, these look great!
    Slightly different presentation idea: what if you were to use the toothpick holes to stick a couple of sage leaves in so that they look like little fruits? I’d love to try that but I don’t know where to buy prosciutto around here.

    thanks for bringing these to the party – they have gone straight onto my shortlist for a feature. Cheers
