Can you believe that Christmas is already come and gone?!  The craziness of the season is over just like that.  Whew.  I love Christmas…but I’m happy to have the pressure of it gone too.  Now I’m looking forward to New Year’s Eve, so like many of you I’m trying to decide now what to serve for munchies!

First up…appetizers!

Prosciutto, Basil, Fig Jam & Goat Cheese Crostinis

I made this recipe over the holidays, and it was such a hit that it’s going to make an appearance at our New Year’s Eve party too!  Maybe yours as well?  😉  This is one of those dishes that you just know is going to go over well at a party!  When I saw it pinned onto Pinterest from the blog The Italian Dish, I knew it was going to be good…you just know these things when you see some recipes!

Prosciutto, Basil, Fig Jam & Goat Cheese Crostinis

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • coarse salt sea or Kosher
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 4 ounces plain goat cheese at room temperature
  • 1 small jar of fig jam
  • slices of prosciutto
  • leaves fresh basil

Instructions

Prepping the Crostini Bread:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice your baguette in to 1/2 inch thick pieces. I like to cut mine at an angle.
  3. Brush each piece with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt & pepper.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the bread is lightly browned and crisp.
  5. When they done, let them cool completely.

Putting the Crostinis Together:

  1. Spread on about 1 tbsp goat cheese.
  2. Then spread on about 1 tbsp fig jam.
  3. Roll together 1/2 slice of prosciutto with 1 basil leaf, and place it on top of the fig jam.
  4. Serve immediately! Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

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




- I also considered using apricot jam for this appetizer...that was my back up plan in case I couldn't find fig jam. I think apricot jam would be delicious too!

This appetizer is so easy to make, a little different than the usual, and it’s so yummy!  This entire plate got demolished!  Yum.

  • Reply Luci@BungalowAtHome December 29, 2012 at 8:12 PM I used Fig preserves for the first time this year but with Mascarpone cheese and it was delish so I am going to try it with the goat cheese and Prosciutto! Thanks for sharing!
