  • ½ tsp Sugar
  • ½ Ripe Pear thinly sliced

Truffle Gouda Prosciutto Naan

Appetizers, Snacks & Sides, Dinner, Recipes

In this recipe I used premade Naan from Stonefire but if you want to make it from scratch Rasa Malaysia has a great and easy recipe.

INGREDIENTS  

  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • ½ Cup Truffle Gouda shredded
  • 3-4 Slices Prosciutto
  • 1-2 tsp Parsley minced
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Naan Bread

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Using a garlic press, press garlic in a small bowl and mix with 1 tsp olive oil and coat 1 side of Naan bread. Put in oven on a pizza stone or non-stick baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  • Using a cheese grater, grate truffle gouda using the large holes until you have about 1/2 cup per bread. Cut or roughly tear 2-4 slices of prosciutto into smaller pieces and dice parsley until you have about 1-2 tsp.
  • Remove naan from oven, sprinkle truffle gouda on bread and top with roughly cut prosciutto.
  • Put back in oven on pizza stone or baking sheet for 7-10 minutes until cheese is fully melted and edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven and garnish with diced parsley.
  • Cut and serve warm. Enjoy!

NOTES

  • Don’t use salt with this recipe. The prosciutto and Gouda will already be salted and if you add additional salt it will be too much.
