Anything made with prosciutto is perfect in my eyes. You can crisp it up and added to Grilled Pear and Crispy Prosciutto Salad or top Bruschetta. I also love it on Grilled Flatbread or Grilled Cheese, both with sweet figs.

I like to brush the tops of these apple bites with honey then put them under the broiler (or grill in the U.K.) to lightly crisp the prosciutto and soften the cheese. They are best served at room temperature.

Apple season was my inspiration for this recipe and you can use any of your favorite sweet apple. The delicate sweet and salty flavor of the prosciutto with the apple along with the slightly warmed Parmesan cheese and basil flavor is truly delicious.

We are coming also into the holiday/Christmas season.Are they not the easiest fall/autumn appetizer that you can just assemble in minutes?

To serve: The reason I like to broil them is because it slightly crisps the prosciutto and adds a little sweetness. It also softens the Parmesan cheese which intensifies the flavor.
