Prosciutto Fig & Goat Cheese Crostini

Ok, so I know that you have seen alot of Crostini and Bruschetta recipes lately. But every good blogger needs to have one recipe that they can adapt and change up to make something new. For alot of bloggers it it the ever so popular Poke Cake, although lately I have seen alot of “Muddy Buddies” recipes too.  Well, mine is the Crostini!

If you follow me on Facebook, you would know that the other day I was asking to see what kind of recipes my lovely followers wanted to see more of or needed as we head into the holiday season. I had some great feedback, which I really appreciate. I mean I am here to share my thoughts, life, photos, and recipes with you. But I also want to help a brother or sister out and get some stuff you actually NEED! 🙂 Anywho, one of the comments was appetizers for the holiday season.

SO…. Here you have it. A Prosciutto Fig & Goat Cheese Crostini. There is crunch from the toasted bread, sweet from the fig jam, salty from the prosciutto, and creamy from the goat cheese.

This is a perfect holiday appetizer, it definitely shouts “i’m classy”. {but nobody has to know how easy it is}  I’m totally making this for a New Years party to eat along side a glass of Champagne to ring in the new year! 🙂

How to Make This Tasty Crostini

To get started, slice 1 loaf of whole wheat french bread into 1/2″ slices. Preheat oven to broiler {high}.

    Did you make these just for me, Krista? 😉 I LOVE all the ingredients! I’m too excited to wait for a party, so I’ll make them just for us. I’ve never seen fig jam, but I might substitute apricot preserves. Thank you!

    1. Krista

      Why, yes, I did make this for you! 🙂 Either work work well, I found the fig jam in the jelly peanut butter aisle. Super good! Let me know how it comes out with the apricots!

    Love how your “thing” is crostinis…becz you rock at it! I would have never thought of using fig for something like this. Let alone even think of fig. You know me…miss sweet tooth over here. But, you really open my eyes to foods that otherwise I’d never get a chance to even “get to know”. Love the combination you use… you have amazing taste! (=

    1. Krista

      haha.. thanks girl! 🙂 I can definitely rock a crostini but desserts, not so much. You got some teaching to do for me in that corner! The fig is great, its the perfect amount of sweet to compliment the prosciutto! Glad I can help you think out of the box chica. And thanks for the foodie compliments, your too sweet!

      haha… I must have some pretty good mind reading skills to have all things you like in one bite. Makes me happy! Hope you get a chance to try it girl! 🙂
