Prosciutto-Wrapped Truffled Breadsticks

Thin breadsticks dipped in truffle butter and wrapped in prosciutto


Mozza Cookbook Prosciutto Wrapped Breadsticks


Maybe because we are staying local for Christmas this year or because we got a taste of a white Christmas when we were in snowy Minnesota last week, but I'm really feeling the holiday spirit this year.  We got a big tree, decked out the rest of our house, and invited friends over for a party last weekend. We didn't have enough seating to do a sit-down dinner, so we transformed our dining table into a buffet and had a bunch of finger foods for people to graze on all night. These breadsticks from
The Mozza Cookbook were one of the most popular dishes and they are so easy to make. Store-bought grissini are broken in half, dipped in truffled-butter, and then wrapped in thinly-sliced prosciutto. They look beautiful stacked on a platter and are a fun alternative to a charcuterie plate.
