Prosciutto Potato Skewers with Cherry Goat Cheese Recipe
My favorite part of a summertime party (or any party, for that matter)? The appetizers. Hands down. As much as I enjoy a great grilled steak or a plateful of grilled corn, nothing beats cruising between the appetizer plates, sampling a taste of every flavor. I’m an equal opportunity snacker!
These prosciutto potato skewers look impressive for entertaining, but couldn’t be easier to put together. And with the addition of salty prosciutto, tangy goat cheese and sweet cherry preserves, they have the perfect balance of savory and sweet.
I had never considered adding a sweet component to potato appetizers until I made some Greek-inspired goat cheese appetizers a couple of months ago. But let me tell you, they were addictive! So, when I felt inspired to dream up another appetizer using my favorite Little Potato Company Creamer potatoes, that sweet and savory combo popped into my mind.
The truth is, I love using Creamer potatoes for appetizer recipes. Their size makes them ideal for bite-sized morsels. But don’t let that size fool you – there is so much flavor packed inside of them, which means that you don’t have to dress them up with a boat load of other ingredients.
Other ideas for Creamer potato appetizers:
• I’m a sucker for smoked salmon! Make a dill yogurt, spread it on smoked salmon pieces and roll it around cooked Creamer potatoes. I could make a meal of these! Here’s the recipe.
• Grill some zucchini strips, add some spices to creamy goat cheese and roll them all together with roasted Creamer potatoes. Here’s the recipe.
• Take the flavors of a classic (but lightened-up) spinach and artichoke dip and stuff it inside of the potatoes. Bite-sized bliss! Here’s the recipe.
• We’ve actually eaten this for dinner, but is fantastic for sharing at a party (think game day snacking!) Roast the Creamer potatoes, then top with all of your favorite Mediterranean-inspired ingredients. Here’s the recipe.
How to make these potato skewers:
• Start with a package of either the Microwave Ready or Oven | Grill Ready Little Potato Company Creamer potatoes. Prepare according to directions. The only change I made was to use slightly less olive oil.
• In a small bowl, stir together some softened goat cheese and cherry preserves.
• Cut the prosciutto slices in half crosswise. You will use one half slice for each skewer.
• Spread some of the goat cheese mixture on a piece of prosciutto, set the potato on top, roll together and secure with a skewer.
