Tasty! They come out lovely and crunchy. and are well worth a try as they're really easy to make and delicious. The prosciutto makes them really salty though... so I'd advise not eating as many as i did :)

Great recipe. Have done this twice now, and all guests loved it. Second time round I sprinkled semolina on them before cooking to make them slightly more crunchy which worked a treat too. Definitely one I will do again.
