Grilled Prosciutto Strawberry Bundles
Sweet, savoury, tangy and salty, these delicious bundles are grilled to perfection. This simple yet sophisticated seasonal appetizer will surprise and delight your guests.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Grilling Time: 6 to 8 minutes
- 8 slices prosciutto
- 80 g Ontario Goat Cheese or Cream Cheese
- 16 small Ontario Strawberries, hulled or 8 large strawberries,
- hulled and halved
- Freshly ground black pepper
Slice each strip of prosciutto in half lengthwise; separate. Place 1/2 tsp (2 mL) goat cheese about 1-inch (2.5 cm) from end of strip; place 1 strawberry on top, then 1/2 tsp (2 mL) goat cheese beside strawberry. Firmly roll prosciutto around cheese and strawberry until securely enclosed. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Top with pepper to taste; cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.
Place bundles on greased grill over medium-high heat (400°F/200°C); cook until slightly grilled about 6 to 8 minutes, turning frequently to avoid burning. Arrange on serving platter; serve immediately.
Tip: These bundles are delicious as a salad topper. Serve on a bed of fresh Ontario arugula with a drizzle of balsamic dressing.
