Cheese in blankets

“For their size and lack of ingredients, these tiny morsels certainly do pack a flavour punch. I love any finger food where you only need one hand (and one bite) to demolish it, so you can easily hold a tipple in the other. I also love a starter that’s super quick and easy to prepare, just like this one. The honey offsets the saltiness of the cheese and prosciutto, so be fairly generous with it. My top tip: serve these quickly before the cheese firms up.” – Tracy Rutherford

Recipe Notes

What is Kefalotyri cheese?

Kefalotyri is a Greek cheese, which you can find in some large greengrocers, specialty shops and supermarkets. You could substitute haloumi, but it is a little saltier and won’t become as soft.
