It’s hard to believe another Christmas has already come and gone. We hope you all had a lovely celebration with family and friends! Even though the unwrapping of presents and singing of Christmas carols is over, we still have a big celebration to look forward to in just a few days: New Year’s Eve. All of us on Team LC happen to love this holiday. We always have a blast when we stick with my closest friends—no matter what we have planned for the night. In fact, some of our favorite New Year’s Eve nights were spent celebrating at home, or at a friend’s dinner party.
The key to hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration is having delicious food and lots of champagne. Speaking of delicious food, it all starts with a great appetizer. And today, we’re going to share one of our favorite appetizer recipes that we like to serve all year round (but especially during these colder months). Without further ado, here is how you can make sweet and savory prosciutto wrapped fig appetizers this New Year’s Eve. Enjoy!
Prosciutto Wrapped Figs
- 8 figs
- 1 packet prosciutto
- sea salt
1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
2. While the oven is preheating, wash and dry your figs, then slice each one in half lengthwise. Place one blackberry in the middle of each fig, and wrap with prosciutto.
3. Set all prosciutto wrapped figs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until prosciutto begins to get crispy.
4. Remove from the oven, place on a serving board, sprinkle with sea salt and drizzle with honey. Serve warm.
These little bite-size morsels honestly melt in your mouth. We serve ours with a little pinch of extra sea salt, a little bit of honey and some slivered almonds on my serving board, so that guests can add to each bite.
