If you are looking for a last minute quick and easy appetizer for your New Year’s Eve celebration I have a great one for you – Parmesan Prosciutto Melts. These delicious little creations are mixture of parmesan cheese and prosciutto melted onto a crostini. They make a great accompaniment to the typical New Year’s bubbly.
One of the great things about this appetizer is you can do the prep work ahead of time. I like to make the crostinis the morning of my event. Simply toast the bread, let it cool completely and then store in an airtight container until you are ready to use. Next make the prosciutto parmesan mixture but don’t actually put it on the bread or melt it. Just chop the prosciutto and mix it with the parmesan, parsley and olive oil. Cover the bowl with the mixture then store in the refrigerator until you are ready to assemble and cook the Parmesan Prosciutto Melts. How easy is that?
Hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve everyone! See you in the new year when I will be serving up lots of great healthy delicious recipes I have been working on to help you kick off the New Year right!
Parmesan Prosciutto Melts
Prep time: 5 minutes - Cook time: 10-12 minutes - Makes: 20 appetizers
- 20 french bread rounds (use white or whole grain)
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil + extra for brushing on the bread
- 3 oz thinly sliced prosciutto
- 1 1/2 cups shredded parmesan
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
- Garlic salt
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place french bread rounds on a baking sheet. Brush the tops with olive oil. Place into oven for 5-6 minutes or until lightly toasted.
While bread is toasting, chop prosciutto and place in a bowl with shredded parmesan, fresh parsley and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir until well mixed.
After bread is toasted, top each piece with a generous mound of the prosciutto parmesan mixture. (It melts down, so don’t be afraid to really pile it on.)
Return bread to the oven for 5-6 minutes or until the cheese is fully melted. Serve and enjoy!

The day after a holiday you are often left with lots of roasted turkey and that can make for some good turkey sandwiches. But instead of just putting the turkey on bread with traditional condiments, why not out a twist on the traditional day-after-a-holiday turkey sandwich this year?
Instead of the usual additions to a turkey sandwich I like to add a little apricot preserves and brie. I heat everything in the oven for 5-7 minutes so the cheese gets all warm and gooey. Quicker than you can change the batteries in your kid’s new toys, you have a tasty toasted turkey sandwich!
Hope you are enjoying the day after Christmas! Happy Holidays!
Next Day Turkey Sandwich
Prep time: 3 minutes - Cook time: 7 minutes – Makes: 1 sandwich
- good crusty bread
- cooked turkey (warm not cold) cut into pieces
- 1-2 tablespoons apricot preserves
- 1 oz slice of brie

In a small bowl mix turkey and apricot preserves. Place on to prepared baking sheet. Place 2 slices of bread on baking sheet. Add brie to one slide of the bread. Heat in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Remove baking sheet from oven. Assemble sandwich adding lettuce if desired. Serve warm and enjoy!

The night before Christmas Eve is movie night in our house. We pull out all the holiday movie classics and curl up on the couch for some low key family time. Clearly this is an occasion that calls for some good homemade snacks.
Just because snacks are homemade doesn’t mean they have to be complicated! No this year mama is TIRED and wants to make something simple. I decided on Nutty Crispy Treats. Ok I know everyone knows how to make rice crispy treats so that is not much of a recipe share there. The thing I like to do that is a little different is to add different flavors to the marshmallows while they are melting.
For tonight’s movie fest I added almond butter to the mix. After a substantial taste test by everyone in the fmaily I can tell you these Nutty Crispy Treats are wonderful. In fact I may have to make a second batch to have enough left for the movies tonight. No worries though, because I can pull a batch together in under 10 minutes. And if you don’t have almond butter you can sub in some peanut butter or even Biscoff Spread (left over from those yummy Belgium Pancakes!) to the melted marshmallows. Either would be equally delicious!
Seasons Eatings Everyone!!
