Prosciutto ham bites

Is greed a sin? My daughters adore nutella, their father loves cakes, and I can't resist proscuitto ham. These little bite-sized starters with peppers and fromage frais are great with the aperitif...

Pour 40 pieces

Preparation : 30 minutes
Ingredients :
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 yellow pepper

2 chopped spring onions
1 tbsp chopped oregano
1 spoon capers, drained and chopped
1 spoon chopped pine nuts
12 thin slices of prosciutto ham

  • Cut the peppers into four, remove the seeds and white.
  • Cook under a grill, skin-side up, until the skin blackens and cracks.
  • Leave to cool, before peeling the peppers.
  • Mix the fromage frais, the parmesan, the onions, oregano, capers and pine nuts.
  • Place the pepper slices over the proscuitto ham slices. Cut the peppers to the same size as the ham slice.
  • Take off the peppers, and paste the ham slice with the fromage frais mixture. Replace the pepper slice.
  • Roll up the ham tightly along the widest edge.
  • Cover, and leave in the fridge for 1 hour. This will make it easier to slice into disks, 1cm thick. Fix each slice with a cocktail stick.
