Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Baked Mozzarella, Prosciutto, and Tomato

This dish makes a lovely light first course. Bake the packages in a dish presentable for table serving, or place immediately onto individual plates for serving. They do not handle transportation well so baking and serving in separate dishes would be difficult, but can be done if you are extremely careful. For a special touch and best flavor make sure the serving dish and/or salad plates are warmed.

20 thin slices mozzarella
20 slices tomato
3 tablespoons fresh basil
20 thin slices prosciutto
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup butter
1 head green curly leaf lettuce or fresh parsley

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each tomato slice. Sprinkle the basil evenly on top of all of the cheese slices. Carefully warp the prosciutto around each tomato-cheese bundle. Place the bundles, fold side down in several shallow baking dishes that can be used for serving if desired. If you do not have a suitable dish for baking and serving, have salad plates set aside and serve the packages on individual plates as a first course. Sprinkle the packages with wine and dot each with butter. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese begins to melt. Garnish individual plates or serving dish with lettuce or parsley.

Makes 20 servings.
