Prosciutto Bread

Prosciutto bread has been in our family for years and usually shows up on Christmas Eve courtesy of my aunt Joyce. A few years ago I tried making it at home with my cousin and we changed up the recipe. No matter what ingredients you choose, it is easy to make and it is decadent. Your kitchen will smell like heaven which is always a good thing. I’ll admit it can be a little messy to eat so just be sure you are in good company when you dig in!

Prosciutto Bread


  • Loaf of fresh Italian bread with a nice crust
  • Garlic, chopped
  • Imported Italian Prosciutto, diced
  • Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Fresh Basil, chopped
  • Shallots, chopped
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small sauce pan place the oil, garlic, prosciutto, and shallots on medium heat. You want all the ingredients to infuse flavor into the oil and simmer. Let your ingredients cook for 5 or so minutes. Add pepper.
  • Turn the heat to the pan off and add your herbs and cheese.
  • Using a large bread knife, slice your bread in long columns and then across to make a checkerboard. You want to cut down 3/4 of the way through. Be sure not to cut all the way through or you will have a big mess.
  • Spoon your ingredients into every crevice making sure you have completely stuffed the bread.

  1. Wow, this looks SO good (but I’m sure I’m stating the obvious). My hubby would be thrilled to see this on our dinner table. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for liking my post about THE potato mountain, Jackie! Have you tried something similar before?

    Oh, this prosciutto (or pro-zhute…) bread looks quite good. I’d like to try it with a slab of bufala mozzarell in the middle!

      Great idea but the execution may be hard! This delicious app is very messy to eat as it is, throw some cheese in their and you may need a knife and fork! 🙂
