This 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.
- 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.
- Grill or toast the bread.
- Smear a generous amount of fig jam on each slice of bread and then top with a dollop of ricotta and crispy Prosciutto.
