3 ingredients that will impress your grilling buddies OR simple, elegant wedges that are a fabulous hors d’oeuvre to pass at a cocktail party. It's up to you! Make these ahead of time to save you valuable party time! If you don't have the cantaloupe, that's OK. Just use some lightly grilled baguette slices or nothing at all. Please note that you will only use HALF of a wheel of brie - it's explained in the directions. You can also put the brie in the freezer for 5 minutes to make it easier to cut. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 slices naturally dry cured prosciutto ham, sliced very thin (about 4 oz)
  • 1 lb wheel double cream brie cheese, chilled (you will only use half of it but need that size to get the right shaped wedges)
  • 14 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cut in 8 slices

Directions

  1. Preheat barbecue to medium-high heat.
  2. Cut Brie in half to make two half-moons. Wrap one half and save for another use. Cut other half into eight equal, pie-shaped wedges. Wrap one piece of prosciutto around each wedge of Brie, covering as much of Brie as possible. Place cantaloupe on serving platter.
  3. Place prosciutto-wrapped Brie wedges on greased grill. Grill for 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side, or until grill-marked and cheese is starting to melt. Place on top of cantaloupe slices and serve immediately.
  4. **** To prepare this ahead of time, prepare the prosciutto and brie packages. Wrap well with plastic wrap and refrigerate until grilling time. ****.
