Prosciutto-Wrapped Smoked Brie

A prosciutto-wrapped Brie cut in half with the soft cheese inside oozing out onto the chopping board.

Complementing flavors of Brie and prosciutto are smoked at a low temperature until the cheese is soft and the prosciutto firm to hold everything together. This is a simple but extraordinarily decadent appetizer.

Although usually an appetizer, it can also be served as an after BBQ dinner treat in place of a traditional cheeseboard. Don’t let its simplicity of preparation fool you. It looks and tastes amazing!

Looking for a little variation? The Brie can be exchanged out for Camembert if you prefer a flavor with a bit more bite. Explore other cured meats to wrap the cheese in. There is also a wide range of honey flavors to choose from for the serving gloss.
