You could get some fresh mozzarella and slice it and put it on some yummy crackers. I'm talking about the kind you get from the deli and that you can tell by the taste didn't come from the cracker isle.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella & Basil recipe

Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella & Basil

Serves eight.

8 thin slices prosciutto (preferably imported), halved lengthwise
8 large basil leaves, torn in half
8 small fresh mozzarella balls (about 1-inch in diameter), halved
8 ripe grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

Arrange 8 slices of prosciutto flat on a cutting board and put a piece of basil on one end of each slice. Top each piece of basil with a piece of mozzarella and a tomato half, matching the cut sides to make a ball. Season very lightly with salt and generously with pepper and then roll up the balls in the prosciutto. Secure each with a toothpick and set on a platter. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Drizzle with the olive oil and serve.
