We are a full week out from the holidays. Everyone is getting back into a routine but I am still thinking about appetizers. Specifically, new ways to eat fresh mozzarella. Can you blame me? Unfortunately, Cliff’s beloved Chicago Bears did not make the playoffs but there is still plenty of football left to watch. And, I  hear hockey will be back in a couple weeks. What could be better than curling up on the couch on a cold winter day and watching football/hockey while eating salami and cheese. Well, there could be cupcakes involved but that is just taking it too far.

While Cliff and I were in California for Thanksgiving his Grandma made us some tasty appetizers to eat while we watched football. One of them was a salami and mozzarella cheese roll. I have seen them in the grocery store before but never tried one. It was mighty tasty!! It made me think, what else could I add to this? I was thinking I could buy a “log” of mozzarella cheese and stuff it with all kinds of things. When I went to the store I discovered that they actually sell “sheets” of mozzarella that you can stuff with whatever you’d like and roll it up. Seriously, how smart is that? We decided to stuff with our cheese with some of our favorites: basil, sundried tomato pesto, and salami (no brainer). This was super easy and super tasty! Plus, the possibilities are endless!!! What would you stuff your cheese with?
