These fig crostini are a mouth-watering appetizer that is very quick to make and ideal in the summer, when figs are in season, until September. The salty taste of prosciutto matches perfectly the sweet flavor of the figs, producing a sweet and salted heavenly taste. Creamy stracchino cheese and honey give the appetizer the final touch for a result that will be simply impossible to resist.

Crunchy and tasty, these crostini are ideal to start a dinner with friends, to accompany a drink or even to be served at a party or buffet. You better prepare loads of them, as they will be finished in literally seconds.

And making them is really a piece of cake: just toast the bread with a drizzle of olive oil and rosemary and then garnish with stracchino, prosciutto, fresh figs cut in wedges and a few drops of acacia honey. For a delicious result we have used a baguette, but you can use any kind of bread – if the slice is too wide, you can just cut it in half.


You can customize this recipe as you want. You can replace stracchino with another creamy cheese or ricotta.

How to make Fig Crostini

Preheat the oven at 200°C / 390°F.

Slice the baguette: the slices should be 1 cm-thick. Lay the slices on a tray lined with parchment paper.

Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil.

Sprinkle with ground rosemary, then bake for a few minutes. Once toasted, remove from the oven and let them cool for a few moments.

Peel the figs and cut into wedges.

Spread the creamy stracchino cheese on the crostini.

Lay half a slice of prosciutto on each slice, folding it nicely.

Put a fig wedge on each crostino.

Drizzle some honey on top of each fig.

Transfer on a cutting board and serve.
