Calabrian Formaggio in una Coperta

aka Calabrian "Cheese in a Blanket"

Our sights are set on Summer 2017 with this recipe.  We are taking our two favorite things about Italy and pairing them together as a love letter to Calabria.  We promise you we will be home soon, dear Calabria!  Just the idea of wrapping thin slices of prosciutto crudo around 36 month aged Parmigiano Reggiano cheese starts to make our mouths drool.
