Goat Cheese and Proscuitto Bites

I probably should have posted this before the holidays, but at least New Years' Eve still hasn't happened yet! This food combination is what turned me on to goat cheese in the first place. This is gluten free (if you use the correct balsamic glaze since some hide gluten in them) and a party favorite since it's "grab and go."

Goat Cheese and Prosciutto Bites

2 cucumbers, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick (I got about 30 pieces)
4oz goat cheese (the log is easier for this)
Fig Jam
1/4lb very thinly sliced prosciutto, cut in half the long way (you need 1 piece for each cucumber)
Balsamic glaze for drizzling (ours was Wegman's brand which is GF)

Star by spreading a bit of goat cheese on each piece of cucumber. On top of that, add about 1/2 tsp of fig jam. Fold your prosciutto and place on top (my pieces were about 4 inches long by 1 inch wide and paper thin). Skewer each cucumber bite with a toothpick and arrange on a serving platter. Drizzle the balsamic glaze in your desired pattern and finish off with a dash of salt and pepper.

Easy, delicious, and healthy!

Enjoy :)
