These Prosciutto, Basil, Fig Jam & Goat Cheese Crostinis are a simple and quick appetizer that is perfect for the holidays!  A delicious 5 minute appetizer!


  • 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


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


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!
