What’s your go-to holiday appetizer? I’d have to say my favorite holiday appetizer has to be a cheese board. It’s a super simple appetizer to throw together with a selection of cheeses, dried fruits, nuts, and accompaniments. Plus when unexpected guests arrive, all the ingredients are already on hand in the kitchen. So it’s easy peasy holiday entertaining without all that holiday stress!
Many people like to serve crackers with a cheese board, we do too. But my family goes nuts over these Parmesan and Prosciutto Breadsticks made with Immaculate Baking Company Organic Crescent Rolls. They are crispy on the outside thanks to a little melted butter, but on the inside you have that soft crescent rolls texture. Plus with the salty prosciutto and parmesan cheese all mixed in, it’s Mmmmm Mmmm Delicious!
During the holidays, I like to keep Immaculate Baking Company crescent roll dough on hand. It’s a refrigerated dough that I can use to make everything from dinner crescents to breakfast mini quiches. I buy this brand because of the ingredients they do and don’t use. They DO use certified organic ingredients like wheat flour, palm oil, and cane sugar. They DON’T use artificial preservatives, flavorings, hydrogenated oils, or additives. They are made with plain ingredients I can feel good about feeding my family. They taste great too which my kids says IS the most important part.
This recipe for Prosciutto Breadsticks makes 20 breadsticks. They are best served warm, but they disappear quickly. So you may want to make double, triple, or quadruple the recipe as needed.
