Antipasto Platter

An antipasto platter can be done any way you like it. You can be fancy, or simply sophisticated. Sometimes less is more depending on the occasion. Most times antipasto contains pickled or oiled vegetables (such as roasted red pepper), cold meat, cheese, perhaps some seafood, and some bread or crackers. I have had various different antipastos and have enjoyed them all!

Description

Prosciutto slicesThis is an Italian pork product so be careful who you are serving to.  Melon goes very well with prosciutto!!YUM

Deviled eggsWhen hard boiling eggs, use older eggs and bring them to a boil over medium heat.  Once boiling, remove from heat and let them sit in the pot of hot water for 11 minutes.  After the time is up – shock them with ice cold water, changing the water often to ensure the cold temperature.  Peel when cool and enjoy them plain, with salt and pepper, or as a deviled egg!
