We recently hosted our monthly Couples Euchre night and I made these yummy little treats I found in my Crescent City Collection cookbook by The Junior League of New Orleans. The hubby suggested I shape them into a Christmas tree....I should have probably added a stump! But they were tasty, nonetheless and gone by the end of the night!
Arugula, Prosciutto, and Mascarpone Cheese Bundles
Makes 24 Bundles
Recipe courtesy of Crescent City Collection from The Junior League of New Orleans
12 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
2 tablespoons minced chives
1 tablespoons capers
12 large thin slices of prosciutto
1 bunch arugula
Mix cheese, chives, and capers in a bowl. Lay a slice of prosciutto on a work surface. Spread with 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture. Arrange a few leaves of arugula on the top so that the leaves slightly hang over the edge.
Roll the prosciutto up like a jelly roll. Cut the roll in half and stand on the flat end so that the arugula leaves show on top. Repeat with the remaining prosciutto, cheese mixture and arugula. Arrange on a server platter.
