Ingredients

  • 1 round Brie cheese (8 oz/230 g)
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 5 prosciutto (2 oz/60 g)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Cut off top rind of Brie; spread mustard over top of cheese. On work surface, arrange 4 of the prosciutto slices side by side and slightly overlapping. Place Brie in centre; fold prosciutto up and onto top. Cover top with remaining prosciutto slice; gently press to mould around cheese. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.)

In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Using tongs to turn cheese, fry prosciutto on rounded edges of cheese until crisp, about 2 minutes. Fry top and bottom until crisp, about 3 minutes per side.
