Crostini with Proscuitto and Goat Cheese

1/4 cup olive oil

coarse salt (Kosher)

fresh ground pepper

4 ounces plain goat cheese, at room temperature or blue cheese

cream Cheese

1 small jar of fig jam

slices of prosciutto

fresh basil leaves

Basically you need: 1 tbsp. goat cheese, 1 tbsp. fig jam, 1/2 slice of prosciutto and 1 basil leaf per crostini.


The bread: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Slice your baguette in to 1/2-inch-thick pieces. I like to cut mine at an angle.

Brush each piece with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt & pepper.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the bread is lightly browned and crisp.

When they are done, let them cool completely. Do not store these in plastic bags, best when store in a wooden bowl or in aluminum catering pans.


Putting the crostini’s together:

Mix the goat cheese with some cream cheese so it is more spreadable on the crostini. Spread on about 1 tbsp. goat (or blue) cheese.

Then spread on about 1 tsp fig jam.

Roll together 1/2 slice of prosciutto with 1 basil leaf, and place it on top of the fig jam.

Serve immediately! Enjoy!
