Fig prosciutto crostini

Crostini is the perfect appetizer for any occasion. This fig prosciutto crostini is the easiest appetizer, but has beautiful elegant flavor that's sure to impress.

A few slices of crispy baked bread paired with prosciutto will forever be my favorite way to start off any event I'm hosting. But what really makes this dish? Figs! They're just as tasty as they are beautiful. And they really pair well with any drink you choose. Red wine, or spiced pear dark and stormy are my favorite picks.
