This might be my new favorite appetizer! This recipe came from the five course dinner that I told you guys about & it was fabulous! The flavors are just amazing put together – if you love a mix of sweet and salty at the same time, this is the dish for you! Try this recipe if you are a fan of these ingredients (or really anything good). You will not be disappointed.
1 fresh baguette
1/8 cup of olive oil
4 ounces of goat cheese, plain, room temperature
6 tablespoons of fig jam
3 slices of proscuitto, cut in half.
6 fresh basil leaves
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: Slice six pieces of bread from the baguette. Place your sliced bread on a baking sheet and brush them all with olive oil. Sprinkle a bit of salt on each slice for taste. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let them cool slightly before plating.
Step 3: Spread some goat cheese on each crostini, then a tablespoon of fig jam, the proscuitto on top of the jam, and finally a basil leave on top of it all.
Step 4: Eat those babies and let me know what you think!
The original recipe came from The Italian Dish.
