We have just the right sweet and savory appetizer for you next get together. Julia Deane, owner of Culinary Works has this delicious crostini option that is great to make just before the guests arrive. The final product needs one tablespoon of goat cheese, one tablespoon of fig jam, a half slice of prosciutto and one basil leaf per crostini. Serve these immediately.
Crostini with Prosciutto, Goat Cheese, Fig and Basil
1/4 cup olive oil
coarse salt (Kosher)
fresh ground pepper
4 ounces plain goat cheese, at room temperature
1 small jar of fig jam
slices of prosciutto
fresh basil leaves
Basically you need:
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 8-10 minutes, or until the bread is lightly browned and crisp.
When they done, let them cool completely.
Assembling the crostini:
Spread on about 1 tbsp goat 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.
