Even if the party starts with the day's first game at 1, you can still thread some skewers or toothpicks. Head for the grocery store and buy:.
3/4 lb Italian Prosciutto di Parma
1 cantaloupe or honeydew melon, or 1/2 of each
1 8 oz container of fresh cherry-size mozzarella cheese, each cheese ball cut in half (optional)
You may already have:
Party toothpicks or bamboo skewers
Cut the melon in half and remove the seeds. Using a melon baller, scoop up the melon into small balls. Take a small strip of prosciutto and wrap it around a melon ball. Pierce through with a toothpick and add a piece of mozzarella if desired. Repeat for all melon balls. Arrange on a platter.
Makes about 30 pieces.
Note: I love melon, so I'd probably buy two for 30 pieces.
