Mini Brochettes of Ham and Sheep Cheese
Petites Brochettes au Jambon et au Fromage de Brebis
A Recipe From: Pays Basque
A nice change from the traditional tomato-mozzarella combination.

Skill Level: Easy
Serves: 4

The night before, cut the cheese into 1/2" cubes. In a bowl, add the cheese cubes, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt and espelette pepper. Mix gently, cover with plastic film and reserve in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Cut each slice of ham in four strips. On a toothpick, thread a tomato, an accordion-folded strip of ham and a cube of marinated cheese. Repeat until you run out of ingredients. Set the brochettes on a platter and serve. Makes 12 mini brochettes.
