No Brainer Appetizer: Proscuitto-Wrapped Mozzarella Skewers

Last night I attended a book launch for a yet-to-be released guide to the good life called Bixology. The book was written by Doug Biederbeck, the owner of San Francisco's popular restaurant Bix. The event was hosted at one of my favorite boutiques, Carrots, and the passed appetizers were original Bix creations. One of the delicious bites was an incredibly easy appetizer idea that I had to share with you! Proscuitto-wrapped mozzarella skewers are a fuss free, no-cook hors d'oeuvre perfect for a last-minute holiday party. I'll definitely be serving them at my next soiree. Here's how you make them:

  1. Look for a high-quality fresh mozzarella. Bix's cheese is pulled in house making for a creamy, luscious texture. Slice into 1/2-inch thick rounds.
  2. Wrap the outside edge with a piece of proscuitto and secure in place with a decorative toothpick.
  3. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with freshly ground pepper.

Voila — instant sophisticated appetizer!

that certainly is an easy one that just about anyone can do...i don't know if it's something that i would make seeing as how i would really have to handle the meat and that's not a doable thing for me (at least not happily)

Great idea! I think I might make these for my New Years party. I'm trying to think of something to use besides a boring wooden skewer. Rosemary would be floppy. Any ideas?
