Prosciutto Pizza Bites



After over a two month hiatus, we are back at last! This summer has flown by and we've been out of town nearly every weekend, which left little time for 'ole Cheffresco. A trip to Montana to see Michael's sis, a beach trip with my fam, weddings and weekend excursions to the mountains and lakes filled the summer. And now it's starting to cool down and finally feel like fall. Normally I hate to see summer go, but the humid, hot, sticky days were brutal. Plus I love all things pumpkin, which September tends to bring. Soup, bread, lattes - ole!



A few pics from the summer...



The tasty little nuggets you see below are super easy to make and are guaranteed crowd pleasers. They're pretty much a little bite of heaven. Of course, how can you go wrong with mini, cheesy prosciutto pizzas? I've even made them twice, which you know means they're good.

  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 
  • 1/4 lb prosciutto, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  3. Whisk in milk and eggs. Stir in mozzarella and parmesan cheese.  
  4. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan. Wrap prosciutto slices around the outside of the cup (may cover a majority of the bottom too).

Looks like you had a great time and welcome back. Love your photos. I can't wait to try these muffins. They would make great appetizers using the mini muffin tins.
