Ham and Cheese Fat Snack

  • 3.5 oz full fat cream cheese, at room temperature

  • 1/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil

  1. “In a bowl, mash together the cream cheese and butter, or process in a food processor until smooth.

    Add the Cheddar cheese and basil. Mix until well combined. Season with pepper. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes, or until set.

    Using a large spoon or an ice-cream scoop, divide the mixture into 6 balls. Wrap each ball in 1 slice of Parma ham and place on a plate. Top each ball with 1 olive and pierce with a toothpick to hold it in place. Enjoy immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days.”
