Quince, Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Toasts

Pintxos (or pinchos) are small snacks, spiked with toothpicks and typically served in Spanish bars in the Basque country. For my Spanish pintxos recipe, I paired sweet quince paste with salty prosciutto and creamy blue cheese!

As promised, here are the Quince, Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Pintxos that I served for my boyfriend’s birthday two weeks ago. These tapas-sized appetizers were hands down my favorite item on the menu  and I just had to share the pintxos recipe with you!

It’s no secret that I adore prosciutto and blue cheese, and the two combined are a match made in heaven. I also loved the touch of sweetness brought about by the quince paste. These blue cheese pintxos are definitely a feast for your mouth!

Are you wondering why I call these blue cheese ‘pintxos’ instead of blue cheese toasts? 

Pin-what? Yeah, I figured you would be confused. I was too. Pintxos (pronounced pinchos) are bite-sized snacks served on skewers in bars and restaurants of the Basque Country in northern Spain.

The funny thing is that pintxos are usually sitting on the counter for easy self-service and at the end of the night, you simply count the number of skewers you have to calculate your bill. Brilliant if you ask me!

That being said, when you try this Quince, Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Pintxos recipe at your next party, don’t make your guests pay for their skewers, mmkay? That would be a little bit rude and not so funny 😉
