I don't know about you, but with all of the holiday eating in the past week I feel as if I have gained a good 10 pounds (I just hope I don't look that way!). I am sure most of us, including myself, are thinking about our healthy start to 2015 and eating clean. But let's not rush the holidays! There is still New Years and plenty of "YOLO" food to eat!
New Year's is all about finger food, champagne, and cocktails. Sure you may have an actual dinner at dinner time, but at all those parties happening it's all about the finger food until midnight and beyond! This recipe is 3 simple ingredients, very easy to put together (even fun for the family to make), and it's a guarantee that there will be zero leftovers.
This has been and always will be one of my party go-to's. It is always popular and you will get so many compliments on them! They are the perfect amount of savory and salty that make your taste buds beg for more.
You can play around with the recipe and change the cheese, use bacon or ham instead of prosciutto, even switch out for a different veggie like zucchini. BUT the original is absolutely worth making, and you should never knock anything until you try it. Personally, whenever I want to alter a recipe or switch up ingredients I always make the original first. This gives me perspective on what the dish is going for flavor wise and texture wise which only helps me to think of ways that it could be different.
