Crostini with Figs, Prosciutto, and Goat CheesePosted: December 7, 2011
Each year at our holiday party, any appetizer made with goat cheese is highly enjoyed. I try to find new ways to use goat cheese in my apps each year and this year I stumbled on this recipe. This was easy to make and very very good. I don’t normally like figs, but with all the other strong flavors the figs worked very well together. These were enjoyed by all!
12 1/2-inch slices of baguette
6 Tbsp goat cheese, at room temp
4 slices of prosciutto*
4 figs, thinly sliced
Honey, for serving
Pinch of salt
Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
Cook for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Tear prosciutto slices into thirds.
Spread 1/2 Tbsp of softened goat cheese on each crostini.
Arrange prosciutto and sliced figs on top.
Just before serving, lightly drizzle with honey and sprinkle salt over top.
Serve at room temperature.
