Prosciutto Wrapped Breadsticks
Guys, I've discovered as I get older, my tolerance for fussy recipes is waning.
I need quick. Simple. Delicious.
Recipes with just a handful of ingredients seem to be more and more appealing. I mean ...
- My Hawaiian Lit'l Smokies? 3 ingredients.
- This Banana Muffin Cake? 3 ingredients.
- Our 3 Ingredient Chicken Marinade? Will rock your world!
- This healthy refreshing Fruit Punch Slush only has 2 ingredients!
Which makes these 2 ingredient, tasty little prosciutto wrapped breadsticks my new favorite appetizer!
If you have never tried prosciutto, it is a dry-cured ham from Italy. It has a rich, salty, savory flavor and it pairs perfectly with crispy, crunchy breadsticks in this recipe. (I mean meat + carbs = winning!) Have your deli slice it paper thin because a little goes a long way and it's a tad pricey. The prosciutto in my deli was about $15 per pound. BUT, I could get 15 thin slices for about $5 which is enough for 30 breadsticks.
Speaking of breadsticks, I l-o-v-e these skinny minny, crispety crunchy Thin Breadsticks from Alessi. I think they provide the perfect prosciutto to bread stick ratio 🙂
When you are ready to make these, simply cut each piece of prosciutto in half, gently break a breadstick in half and wrap the broken end of the breadstick in prosciutto. Leave a bit of the breadstick unwrapped so guests can pick them up.
Place them on a serving plate and call this appetizer done! I used a few sprigs of fresh rosemary for garnish and I think it looks so pretty!
Since you don't want the breadsticks to get stale or too chewy, make these right before your guests are going to chow down. And trust me, they are going to chow down!

This is why I love Link Parties: I used to follow your blog eons ago and for some reason, lost touch.
I saw this recipe and pinned it then I see your name!
I love that.
I also love a recipe that is only two ingredients and little work!
Nice to see you again. 🙂

I will add another idea: spread a bit of cream cheese on the bread stick before wrapping the prosciutto on! It adds a bit of moisture to what can otherwise be a little dry and also helps the prosciutto stick on. I live in Italy and we do this all the time. My 5-year-old boy goes nuts for it! 🙂 Lisa

Yes for easy recipes! These look delicious too. Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday!
I want to make these for a wedding. Can I make them in the morning for appwtizers in the afternoon?
