Fresh Mozzarella PinWheels


This is a very simple appetizer that I made for our Thanksgiving gathering that would be great for Christmas or the New Year Celebration. All you need is a fresh mozzarella roll (I found this at my local grocery store in the deli section) tomatoes, fresh basil, and prosciutto. Roll out the the mozzarella, place thin sliced tomato, basil, and strips of prosciutto on the flat mozzarella. Now roll it up carefully and cut into pinwheel slices. I heard a good tip about using dental floss to cut through soft cheese. I might try that next time. I used a sharp knife and it worked OK.

Blessings on all your Christmas worship and celebrations!

  9. Okay, I did a slight variation of this (i skewered a large basil leaf that was surrounding a bocconcini ball and a cherry tomato onto a toothpick) it was easy finger food and so fresh and delicious and healthy! Thanks for the inspiration!
