Cheese Stuffed Prosciutto Okra

  • Prep Time: 15m
  • Cook Time: 10m
  • Total Time: 25m


  • 2 oz whipped cream cheese, or regular softened
  • 2 oz Boursin cheese
  • 1/2 lb okra, halved and seeds removed
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes, can add more if you like heat
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 slices of prosciutto, cut in half


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cheeses, lemon zest, red pepper and salt- mix to combine everything.
  3. Stuff the okra halves with the cheese mixture. Make sure not to overstuff them. I use about 2 teaspoons per okra half.
  4. Wrap the prosciutto slices around each stuffed okra and place on a lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake the okra for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden and crispy. Enjoy!
