Italian Crostini with Figs, Prosciutto, and Goat Cheese

Posted on | September 7, 2012 | 7 Comments

I am very fond of these little Italian toasted breads. The variety of toppings seems endless. I really like spreading goat cheese on them and topping them with fresh fruit like Strawberries (recipe here). I am very excited about this variety as quite a few different flavours fuse together in these little bites. The Prosciutto blends amazingly with the flavours of goat cheese and fresh figs. Add a drizzle of honey as a finish touch and you have an absolutely delicious snack, appetizer, even light lunch or dinner. And it is prepared in no time without any fuss.

Ingredients

  • fresh baguette, sliced
  • olive oil
  • goat cheese
  • prosciutto
  • fresh figs, sliced
  • honey

Directions

Drizzle a little olive oil on the bread slices. Either grill the bread on the barbecue or broil them in the oven.

Then spread goat cheese on the bread slices. Top them with Prosciutto and slices of fresh figs.

Drizzle with a little bit of honey.

Serve immediately. Guten Appetit!
