Jalapeno Prosciutto Poppers
These poppers are sure crowd pleasers as they provide a nice visual pop on your plate, and great flavor in your mouth! They are simple to make and grill, and aren’t too spicy because the seeds from the jalapeno have been removed.
10 jalapenos- tops cut off, with seeds and insides removed
one (6-8 oz.) package of prosciutto
4-6 oz. Havarti cheese (or your favorite type of cheese). Cut cheese into lengthwise pieces the length of the jalapenos. They will need to be skinny enough to fit inside the jalapeno after being wrapped with prosciutto.
After removing the tops and seeds of the jalapenos, wrap the cheese pieces with a piece of prosciutto. (Make sure to portion out the prosciutto so that there is enough for all the poppers.) After each piece of cheese is wrapped with a piece of prosciutto, stuff it inside the jalapeno as far as it will go. Repeat this process with all the poppers.
Prepare a grill for medium direct heat (about 350 degrees). Grill the poppers for about 8 minutes total, 4 minutes each side, or until nice char marks form and the cheese begins to melt.
