Serves: 4-6 (makes 12 ‘sticks’)
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
- 1 bunch of celery, washed and cut into 15cm sticks
- 200g cream cheese with herbs
- 12 slices of parma ham
What to do
Preheat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5.
Fill the celery sticks with the cream cheese.
Place each slice of Parma ham between 2 layers of cling film or greaseproof paper and roll firmly with a rolling pin to flatten them out. Wrap each slice round a filled celery stick, and place the wraps on a baking tray.
Bake for 20 minutes until the Parma ham is crisp, and serve hot.
