Ingredients:
Serves 4 as antipasto, yields 12-14 pieces
Bresaola, ¼ pound, sliced paper-thin
Cream cheese, 8 oz package
Sweet relish, 3 Tablespoons
Salt and pepper to taste

Method:
In a bowl, mix last 4 ingredients to a smooth, creamy mixture. Take a Bresaola slice and form into a funnel or cornucopia. Use a spoon or pastry bag to fill each slice evenly with mixture.

Bresaola is an air-dried cured and aged beef Salume, obtained from the most valuable cuts of the bovine thigh. Intense and uniform red color, tender and soft with delicate flavor and spiced aroma, Bresaola is lean and healthy.
