INGREDIENTS

  • 5 oz Pumpkin
  • 1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 0 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 0 1/24 pinch Stevia
  • 4 oz, boneless Prosciutto
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 0 1/2 cup, shredded Gruyere Cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Cut pumpkin into 18  1-inch cubes. 
  2. In a small bowl toss the pumpkin cubes with the oil, pumpkin pie spice, and a pinch of granular sugar substitute (stevia; use more if using sucralose or other sweetener - up to 1 teaspoon).  Place on a piece of parchment and roast for 25-30 minutes until tender.  Taste and adjust sweetener as necessary.  Set aside to cool.  
  3. Combine softened cream cheese with Gruyere in a medium bowl mixing with a fork.  Set aside.   
  4. Cut prosciutto slices in half (18 equal 3x3 squares).  Place into a mini muffin tin pressing down into the tin, leave excess to overlap outside the well.  Fill each prosciutto well with 1 1/3 teaspoons cheese mixture then place a piece of pumpkin in the center.  Fold the excess prosciutto in towards the center and press together.  Bake for 5-8 minutes until cheese is bubbly and prosciutto has cooked edges.  1 serving = 2 pieces.
