Mandarin Prosciutto Hors d’Oeuvres

Mandarin Prosciutto Hors d’Oeuvres

The sweet juicy goodness of mandarin oranges contrasts beautifully with creamy mozzarella and the salty taste of prosciutto ham. It’s the perfect combination for a small bite to tempt the taste buds. Whether you serve them on their own, or as part of a larger charcuterie table, they’re sure to be a hit.


  • 1 baguette
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 6 shallots thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs rosemary chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 lemon juice only
  • 4 mandarin oranges peeled
  • 1/2 lb fresh mozzarella thinly sliced
  • 14 slices prosciutto
  • 3/4 cup walnuts chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 375 ºF.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet at a medium setting. Sauté the shallots until they are fragrant, or about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the rosemary and pepper and continue to sauté until softened, or about another 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Stir in the honey and lemon juice, and then the chopped mandarin.
  • Let the mixture simmer until it’s reduced by about a quarter.
  • Set aside and let it cool.
  • Cut the bread into slices about 1/2-inch thick. Brush with 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic powder, distributing it as evenly as you can.
  • Place the slices on a baking sheet, and toast in the oven for about 1 minutes under the broiler.
  • Top with the mozzarella slices, and return under the broiler for another minute.
  • Add a piece of prosciutto to each, and then top with a spoonful of the mandarin mixture.
  • Top with chopped walnuts.
