A simple, 10-minute Prosciutto Mozzarella Bruschetta appetizer that incorporates salty and savory ingredients. This mouthwatering combination will quickly become a favorite for all of your get-togethers.
After making a delicious melon ball salad (recipe coming soon), I had an extra package of prosciutto leftover. So instead of whipping up my favorite prosciutto arugula pizza, I headed to the store and picked up a fresh mozzarella ball, arugula and a loaf of french bread.
Are you already a Bruschetta fan? Then you know that a toasted baguette topped with a mixture of diced tomato, basil, olive oil and perhaps some fresh mozzarella or red onion is a hit! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made it for my guests. So why not change it up and top a slice of the toasted baguette with other flavors that pair just as well together. I’m glad you asked!
The mozzarella provided a layer of creaminess that set the base for the melt in your mouth, buttery prosciutto. The arugula gave off a fresh herbal aroma and adds another level of flavor to the saltiness of the meat. Finally, each slice is drizzled with balsamic vinegar to add a level of sweet and tartiness to the appetizer.
These quickly became one of my favorite appetizers. I didn’t hesitate when my hubby asked me to make them again the following night as a snack before dinner.
I hope you think of this recipe next time you want a flavorful snack to go with your wine. Also, to serve as a brag-worthy appetizer to your friends or guests!
