Prosciutto Dip

(Adapted from Ursula’s Cooking School)

Easiest appetizer in the world, AND it’s my personal favorite. I got it from my mother years ago, and it’s still my “go to” for a quick delicious appetizer.  The saltiness of the prosciutto mixed with the creaminess of the cream cheese and sour cream = OMG!  I usually have all these ingredients on hand, so it’s a great little appetizer to throw together when unexpected company is coming over.  It literally takes about 5 minutes to prepare (although it’s better when prepped in advance to allow the flavors to combine well). ENJOY!


3-4 oz thinly sliced regular prosciutto or Speck, cut into pieces
8 oz softened cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
1 TBSP dry minced onion
1 TBSP dry chives
1 1/2 tsp Lemon Pepper


  1. Mix cream cheese and sour cream in a food processor. Add remaining ingredients and pulse just to blend.
  2. Chill to let flavors marry; then serve with crackers.
  3. I’ve packed mine in a Rubbermaid container and will carefully transport chilled to the tailgate party.
