Grape Leaf Packages Filled with Mozzarella Cheese and Serrano Ham

by Sally Bernstein

Makes 4 servings

2 large balls of fresh mozzarella, about 1 pound
2 paper-thin slices Serrano ham or prosciutto
4 large grape leaves
olive oil for sautéing
½ cup garlic-flavored olive oil

Cut each ball of cheese into 4 think slices for a total of 8 slices.  Lay a slice of ham or prosciutto on 4 of the cheese slices, and then top each with the remaining cheese slices. 
Wrap each “sandwich” with a grape leaf. 

Heat a sauté pan to high heat and add a few tablespoons of olive oil.  Sear the wrapped cheeses for about 30 seconds per side, until the grape leaf is a little crisp. 

Transfer to a platter and drizzle with garlic oil. 

Serve at room temperature.
