Any Prosciutto Lovers Here?

I love Prosciutto and one of my favorite munchies/appetizers is Prosciutto-wrapped cantaloupe. Any melon works good, but cantaloupe is my absolute fave.

However, I'm wondering about other ways to eat Prosciutto besides wrapped around melon or cheese sticks.

How do you eat/serve yours? Recipes/pics appreciated, if you have them.

I’m also a prosciutto lover. I like it as part of a plate with cheeses, olives, pickles and other dried/cured meats.

It’s also part of a baked stuffed shrimp recipe I make.

I’ve used it to stuff chicken breasts and pork chops as well.

Oh yes....love it! My last night at my daughter and SIL's before I came home a few days ago was a great platter of prosciutto, warmed brie, sliced apple wedges (didn't have melon on hand), Milton's crackers, salami, olives, several other cheeses and salami, can't even remember what else. But it was a fabulous and very enjoyable dinner.

When I was in Italy, I went to a little sidewalk cafe for lunch, and they served prosciutto very simply on some crusty bread, with a little olive oil, and grilled panini style. I loved it. Just some really good cured meat and some good crusty bread. That and a cold beer made a nice, simple lunch.

I prociutto! I've wrapped a slice around a fresh fig, cut an x-mark in the point of the fig, and stuffed said fig with a bit of goat cheese. Bake in moderate oven for about 8 minutes. ~ I tear it up and put use it as one of the toppings in homemade pizza. ~ I cut it into fat julienne slices, frizzle just a bit in a hot fry pan, and put it on top of salad. ~ It's good wrapped around a blanched asparagus spear, with a tiny bit of lemon zest grated onto the prociutto before you wrap the spear.

Grill some thin asparagus with olive oil, salt and pepper. Wrap 3 pieces in prosciutto, dress with a light lemon juice vinaigrette.

Cook some sliced onions down with a rich fruity red wine. Place on bruschetta with some gorgonzola and prosciutto.

A panini with roasted red bell peppers, fresh moz and prosciutto.

Which do you like better, Prosciutto di Parma or Prosciutto di San Danielle? Saltimbocca is a great dish.

On the whole, Parma ham is considered very inferiore di to San Daniele -for the love of God don't use either fo cook with. Saltimbocca is a dish that requires
different a cured ham, when you cook the ham, so you would have to do your homework before even starting a saltimbocca!

I like in in a sub along with the other meats, cheese, lettuce, tomato, olive oil, vinegar and spices on a nice crusty long loaf of bread preferably with sesame seeds on top. UNCOOKED or HEATED!
