CHRISTMAS SNACKS 2 OF 3: HERBED CHEVIN AND PROSCIUTTO GRISSINI
Pop a bunch of them in a glass and breadsticks – aka Italian grissini – make a delightful focal point on any festive table, buffet spread and bar cart. But because it’s Christmas we think extra indulgence is in order. A sinfully generous schmear of soft and creamy goat’s cheese, some quality aged ham and for freshness something peppery and green like rocket sounds just about right.
- WHAT YOU WILL NEED -
- store-bought grissini (crisp Italian bread sticks)
- soft goats’ cheese (chevin)
- Cape Herb & Spice MEDITERRANEAN ROAST
- wild rocket
- prosciutto or serrano ham slices (or any other aged ham of your choice)
- METHOD -
Mix soft goats’ cheese with a sprinkling of Cape Herb & Spice Mediterranean Rub spice – start with a little and taste as you go to see how herby you like it. Place a generous dollop of cheese at the top of a bread stick. Add a sprig of rocket and wrap around prosciutto.
