Sweet potato and prosciutto starter

This starter was very easy to make and tasted very classy due to all the flavor contrast - the carrot and pumpkin like sweetness of the sweet potatoes with the fleshy smokiness of the ham and richness of mayonnaise with a strong citrus tang. It's really no big deal to make them but they look and taste very different than what you usually have as a starter. Enjoy :)
Recipe source here.

Ingredients (for a batch of 16 pieces- serves a small party or just a couple of people):

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 8 slices of prosciutto
  • pretty cocktail or appetizer sticks :)
Heat up the oven to 200 degrees. Get the sweet potatoes:

Peel them:

Cut them into thick slices and rub them with the olive oil. Spread them on a baking sheet and put in the oven:

Keep them for 20-30 minutes until they'e softened up. Transfer them on a plate and cut each prosciutto slice in half. Fold them and top each potato slice, like this:

Mix the mayo with the lemon juice and put a little bit on top of each stater. Push a cocktail pin through each and it's done, dig in! :)
