Prosciutto Rolls


2 ounces nonfat cream cheese
12 slcs prosciutto
1 pear cut into 12 slices


Mix together the cream cheese and Stilton until well blended. Salt and pepper to taste. Spread the cheese mixture on each of the prosciutto slices. Brush the pear slices with lemon juice and place one slice on each slice of prosciutto. Roll up the prosciutto lengthwise. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
NOTES : If only prosciutto wasn't a tad bit on the expensive side...we would eat it every day. Most likely we would not appreciate it as much as we do now. This appetizer is very simple and savory. You can substitute ham for the prosciutto if you cannot find it or if it is beyond your budget.
Here's another good idea....substitute smoked salmon for the prosciutto. Maybe mix a bit of horseradish with the cream cheese?
I think I'd skip the Stilton if using smoked salmon. This could also be made into a wrap using tortillas. I'm not sure about the pear. Maybe instead of the horseradish you could dice some canned pear and mix with the cream cheese? Btw, the notes aren't mine....we eat prosciutto frequently....Sam's sells it at a reasonable price.
Did you know you can toast it in the oven then crumble it as you would bacon? So good and so much lower fat!
