These chives prosciutto rolls are the perfect finger food for a light, still tasty buffet!
I want to spend just few words about this dish.
Who said that party food has to be deep fried heavy and complicated? With only 26 calories per roll, this dish is the demonstration that you can prepare a perfectly simple, but still appetising, starter or snack, without all the calories, fat and preservatives present in all the prepacked snacks and appetisers.
You will find this dish very simple and easy to prepare, with only 4 ingredients to buy (and if you are a ‘food from scratch’ lover like me, you probably already have them in the fridge).
There is also no cooking required, so this is a perfect dish you can prepare hours in advance and store in the fridge, waiting for your guest to arrive, or also just perfect to take to work as a lunch snap.
All you need to do is to put in the middle of each slice of parma ham a teaspoon full of cheese-chives mixture and few rocket leaves, then roll and seal the roll with a chive. Easy, isn’t it??
One other thing I love (and you are going to love too) about this dish is the final effect in the presentation. Only about 10 minutes in the kitchen and you will have a very elegant finger food for your dinner party or your buffet.
Let’s talk about the taste!
I’m a parma ham lover so expect me to use this ingredient in many other recipes. But if you are not such a fun of it, you can use any other ham, salami or sliced meat! After all we all like different things but I really think you should give parma ham a chance 😉 trust me, it works perfectly: the crunchiness of the rochet leaves contrasts with the softeness of the Philadelphia cheese and the strong taste of the chives contrast with the the sweetness of the parma ham. Mmm I’m getting hungry now!
I hope you enjoy it as much as me! I can’t wait to have your feedback on it!
