Brie and prosciutto crostini
(to top on your favorite spring salad)

15 min
  • 1 baguette, sliced diagonally into 1/4-inch slices (about 40 slices)
  • 8 ounces Brie cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut crosswise into 1/3-inch-wide ribbons (about 6 slices)

Finely chopped fresh thyme leaves, for serving (optional)

  1. Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Arrange the baguette slices on the prepared baking sheet. Cut the Brie into 1/4-inch-thick slices and put 1 slice on each piece of baguette. Broil until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Drizzle the toasts with the honey and then top with some prosciutto and a sprinkle of thyme leaves if using.

Brie and Pomegranate Crostini

30 min
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 French baguette, sliced into 1 inch slices
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 8 wt oz brie cheese, sliced
  • 1/4 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 2 tbs chopped flat leaf parsley

    Add the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to a simmer and allow to cook until thick and syrupy, about 15 minutes. Preheat the broiler on your oven. Add the bread slices to a baking sheet, brush the top side with oil. Broil until golden brown, about 3 minutes (if your broiler heats unevenly, you may need to rotate the baking sheet halfway through), remove from oven. Flip the slices over, place sliced brie on the non-toasted side. Return slices to the broiler until cheese has melted, 1-2 minutes. Plate crostinis, drizzle with balsamic glaze (add glaze to a plastic squeeze bottle for easy and pretty presentation), sprinkle with seeds and parsley.
