Ingredients
  • 2 Cups Fontina cheese, grated
  • 1/4 Cup Prosciutto, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • as needed black pepper, cracked
  • 2 Tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 Cups panko breadcrumbs

Instructions
  1. Combine fontina and prosciutto in bowl; toss with flour to separate components. Add rosemary and pepper.
