These Prosciutto Wrapped Avocado Bites make the perfect party appetizer. Why?

  • They take all of ten minutes to make.
  • You only need three ingredients.
  • There’s no need for serving utensils or toothpicks. Just wrap them up and serve.

In reality, you don’t need a recipe for these Prosciutto Wrapped Avocado Appetizers, but I gave you one anyway! Just grab a couple avocados, some sliced prosciutto, and some balsamic glaze.

I always seek out Prosciutto di Parma when I’m buying prosciutto.If you’re buying pre-sliced you’ll notice the gold crown on the label which ensures that it’s from North-Central Italy. Otherwise, you can also find it at the deli counter in many grocery stores. Prosciutto di Parma producers take their time to craft the best prosciutto. It’s buttery and salty yet surprisingly delicate. Prosciutto di Parma helps you add a slice of life to everyday occasions. It’s perfect for making an appetizer feel extra special, but it’s also perfect for everyday snacking… I tend to have a couple packages in my fridge at all times.

How to Make Prosciutto Wrapped Avocado

To make these prosciutto wrapped avocado bites, I cut each avocado in half, remove the pit, and then cut each half into 4-wedges. Then, I cut each slice of prosciutto in half lengthwise and wrap then around the avocados. To finish, I drizzled on a balsamic glaze.

To make things extra easy, I purchased the balsamic glaze premade in the grocery store. However, you can also make your own if you’d like, using this recipe. Or, you can make things extra simple by leaving the glaze off entirely and just sprinkling each avocado bite with some coarse salt.

How Do You Make Balsamic Glaze?

  • To make the balsamic reduction, bring 1 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar to a boil and then let it reduce until it becomes thick and syrupy. This will take about 20 minutes.

I teamed up with Prosciutto di Parma to bring you this post. As always, all opinions are my own.

    Mmmmmmm creamy avocado with a handle of prosciutto sounds like an excellent snack vehicle. My only problem is sometimes tearing the prosciutto as I’m removing them from a package and oops, it’s broken so I’ll just eat this…


    1. Erin

      Ha ha! I’m so with you Pech – I need to buy double the prosciutto just so that I can have a healthy serving of it while making these 🙂


  2. Catherine @ Ten Thousand Hour Mama

    I seriously love avocado, and I love how it becomes finger food here – without going all messy and slippery on you!


    1. Erin

      Totally agree Catherine!

    Was looking for a recipe for filet bites, which I found and were delicious and came across the prosciutto and avocado recipe. Love both of these ingredients so I gave them a try also. My guests were impressed with both. Thanks for sharing these recipes. I will definitely being adding these to my recipe book.
