Prosciutto and Fig Crostini
This is an incredibly easy appetizer that pleases everyone with the sweet and salty combination. No recipe needed here. Simply slice up a baguette on a diagonal (so you have a larger surface) drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and toast it. You can do this on the grill, in a grill pan, in the oven or under the broiler, whatever method you prefer. Spread some fig preserves on each slice and top with a thin slice of proscuitto di parma. You can also use serrano ham in place of the prosciutto.
Try this at your next dinner party and take the time saved in the kitchen to spend some time with your guests!
