A quick and easy appetizer for your dinner guests to enjoy before any meal or holiday gathering. This crostini has a taste profile that is a little sweet, salty, and savory and so very TASTY!


  • 1 gluten-free (or regular) French style rustic baguette, sliced slightly on the diagonal into 1/2 inch slices (*see notes below)
  • olive oil
  • 6 oz. soft or semi-soft cheese (like Port Salut or Brie)
  • 1/3 cup fig spread
  • 3 oz. thinly sliced prosciutto
  • 2 cups arugula
  • balsamic glaze


  1. Preheat griddler to 400 F degrees.
  2. Generously brush bread slices with olive oil and lay face down on the griddler for 10 minutes, or until lightly toasted and slightly golden brown.
  3. Spread some cheese on each crostini. Spread about a teaspoon of fig jam on top of the cheese. Add folded pieces of prosciutto (I place half of a slice of prosciutto on each crostini). Top with several arugula leaves. Lightly drizzle top of each crostini with balsamic glaze. Eat and relax. : )
