When you are in need of a simple, delicious appetizer that is sure to please any crowd you can never go wrong with a crostini! And this recipe using Preserve International Balsamic Fig Jam, Goat Cheese, Prosciutto and fresh Basil is one of my very favorites!
So fresh and with some truly delicious and complex flavors this recipe can be parred down for a small gathering or easily doubled, tripled or quadrupled to feed a crowd. While I love using Preserve International's Balsamic Fig Jam (linked below), you can always plain fig jam from any of your favorite brands. A perfect recipe for all of your holiday menus. Give it a try and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
