Ham and Jam Crostini - Simple Saturday

This week we have lots of family and friends here for my daughter's wedding. I pass along a quick bite to serve the ones you love and the one's they bring with them.
Ham and Jam Crostini
RECIPE: Ham and Jam Crostini

1 French Baguette - sliced on the diagonal, drizzle each piece with olive oil and toast til crisp

On each crostini:

1 tsp. Ricotta cheese (so easy to make your own; see here)

1/3 slice of Black Forest Ham (roll into a cone for a little height on the crostini)

1 tsp. of Fig Jam (any not too sweet jam goes great with this)

A few strips of fresh mint chopped

Then add a tiny drizzle of good olive oil, and serve on a platter.

The combo of the earthy ham, the sweet jam, the creamy cheese, the crunch of the crostini and the surprise of the so satisfying.
Here's wishing all of you love and happiness in your relationships - and Simple Saturdays.
