Cantaloupe and Ham Tidbits

All you need here is a lovely fresh cantaloupe, ham and toothpicks. Let’s go…

  • Oil for the grill pan
  • 1/4 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cut in wide 1 inch wedges
  • 4 thick slices parmesan focaccia bread, crusts removed, toasted and cut into quarters
  • 8 slices of a honey or black forest ham, cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 oz. camembert cheese, cut into 16 pieces
  • olive oil, freshly ground pepper for garnish

Lightly oil grill before preheating over high heat. Grill the melon until grill marks show (2-3 minutes). Remove to a cutting board and cut into 1 inch chunks.  That was the hard part.

To put this together, place the bread on a platter, top with pieces of ham, then the cantaloupe, and finally the cheese. Hold together with a fancy toothpick and drizzle a drop or two of oil on each one and sprinkle with black pepper.

Now, that wasn’t hard, was it? Enjoy, these are beautiful.
