Thanksgiving is next week, but we’re starting the celebration early by having my mom, brother, and sister-in-law over for a pre-Thanksgiving party. Since we know a heavy meal is right around the corner, we’ve opted to keep things lighter and each provide several appetizers to share.
I haven’t had a lot of time to plan what to make, though. It’s been insanely busy at work lately – I’m a graphic designer for three magazines, and it’s right around deadline for all three. Add to that all the busy-ness that comes with being a parent to three kids under 10, and it’s easy to see why it’s hard to invest a lot of time in party prep! I’m sure many of you can relate to this not-enough-time-in-the-day feeling, right?
Because of all I’ve got going on right now, and because easy is always appealing to me, I wanted to find something quick but delicious to contribute, so I decided on this 3-ingredient recipe that I’m sharing with you today.
The idea for this recipe centers around the cheese. I love a good cheese, and when I saw this Boursin® Garlic & Fine Herbs gournay cheese at Walmart I knew exactly what I wanted to make. I went ahead and picked up some of the monterrey jack & spicy pepper cheese dip, too, thinking it’d provide a completely different flavor profile to have at our gathering. Just a note – these cheeses were in a stand-alone refrigerated display up near the deli counter at our Walmart.
For the main recipe, I just needed two other ingredients to go along with the Boursin® cheese: a baguette, and prosciutto.
The recipe really couldn’t be any easier – but the flavor it provides is out of this world amazing, and these will be a show-stopper at any party you attend this holiday season.
Put your baguette in the oven at 375 degrees for just 3 minutes or so, and you’ll get a nice crust to it. Let it cool, then slice it on an angle and spread some of the Boursin® cheese on each slice.
Wrap each piece of bread with a slice of prosciutto, and voila! You’ve got a flavorful, elegant, delicious appetizer that will wow your guests, and it’ll only take you a few minutes to assemble it all.
Of course, I mentioned earlier that I got the Boursin® monterrey jack & spicy pepper cheese dip, too. I’m planning to set it out with tortilla chips for an easy party snack that’s a unique twist on the typical chips & queso. It literally took one minute to prep for this!
If you’ve got a great Boursin® recipe (and it can be just as simple as the one I’ve shared above) be sure and enter it in their Instagram contest that’s running through December. Just post a photo of a party dish you made with Boursin®, and tag it with #boursinparty and #walmart.
