Prosciutto Cups with Cheese & Herb Filling

Prosciutto Cups with Cheese & Herb Filling served on a white plateI love prosciutto! You might remember seeing this lovely dry-cured ham in some of my other recipes …. can’t seem to get enough πŸ™‚

These are AMAZING for a party. You can make the cups and filling ahead of time, place each in their own zip-lock bags, refrigerate, and pull out when ready to use. Just bring to room temp, then fill with the creamy cheese. Mmmmm.

Since it was just the girls and I eating these, I had some leftovers, so I plopped them on top of a bed of mixed greens, for an unforgettable salad. But, I really doubt you’ll have any leftovers πŸ™‚ heheh

    Made this today for my sorority meeting tonight. Tasty and easy to do! I ran out of prosciutto and had some soppressata rounds which were perfect size for the mini muffin pans. Actually easier to do and just as tasty! My friends will want the recipe!
