Jam-y Fig & Ricotta Bruschette with Crispy Prosciutto

025This is another example reminding us that food does not have to be complicated to be good.

A perfect bite of slightly-sweet fig jam smeared on grilled rustic bread and topped with luscious, creamy ricotta with crispy Prosciutto is good fast food.

Enjoy as a light breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack for one or fill a platter for a larger gathering, as this is a definite crowd-pleaser.





  • Rustic bread or baguette, sliced
  • Fig jam
  • Ricotta
  • Prosciutto, thinly sliced
  1. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, place the Prosciutto slices in a single layer. Bake in a 350* oven until crispy. Let cool a bit and then chop or break into desired pieces.
  2. Grill or toast the bread.
  3. Smear a generous amount of fig jam on each slice of bread and then top with a dollop of ricotta and crispy Prosciutto.
