How To Make Crostini:
To make this Brie, Fig, and Prosciutto Crostini, first I sliced a baguette on the diagonal and toasted the slices until they were just beginning to brown.
Once the toasted bread was cool, I spread it with a bit of fig jam for a touch of sweetness. Up next, was a slice of creamy brie followed by thinly sliced prosciutto.
I finished things off by topping the Brie, Fig, and Prosciutto Crostini with a few leaves of peppery arugula tossed lightly with olive oil and salt and pepper. Bellissimo!
