Prosciutto, Mt. Tam and Fig Jam Crostini

What ingredients do you need for this fig jam crostini recipe?

Sourdough baguette: We are using sourdough baguette slices, but you can use a french baguette, or even loaf to make toasts for this. You can use other options too, such as crackers!

Mt. Tam: You can opt to sub with brie cheese or goat cheese as well. Mt. Tam is an organic triple creme that is so creamy and delicious. Mt. Tam pairs perfectly with sweets/preserves/jams really well in addition to sparkly wine! (perf to pair with this recipe!) This is definitely the star of the crostini’s, absolutely perfect with the salty meat and sweet jam. (I DREAM of this). And yes, you can definitely eat the rind.

Prosciutto: Topping with prosciutto gives this appetizer a nice nutty and salty finish!

Figs: We are making a super quick homemade fig jam but you can use store bought fig preserves as well! The fig jam is being made with sugar and fresh lemon juice and zest.

If you want to add any additional ingredients to this recipe, any nuts (toasted or un-toasted) would be a nice holiday party addition, such as walnuts or pecans! Also any fresh herbs would be nice, too such as fresh rosemary or fresh thyme, if you want to add some green.

Instructions to make the perfect fig jam crostini

Make your fig jam

Begin by making your fig jam! In a food processor or blender, add your figs with 2 tablespoons water and blend until a thick and smooth consistency forms. You don’t want it too watery, and I prefer a little bit of chunks, so just a few pulses.

Place in a sauce pan and add your sugar, lemon juice and zest of a lemon with salt. Reduce everything down for about an hour, at medium-low heat, until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture has thickened significantly and turned into a jam! Set aside in a container and let cool, then place in the fridge.

Toast your bread and assemble!

In the meantime, slice and bake your bread in the oven on a baking sheet with parchment paper and remove when golden brown. Rub garlic on the toast (optional step). Spread on your jam, then sliced Mt. Tam cheese, then a slice of prosciutto. Top with lemon zest, oil, salt and pepper. Serve!

Tips for the best fig jam appetizer and how to make crostini

  1. Right after you toast your crostini’s, rub garlic over it before adding the jam, this adds so much flavor and tastes delicious!
  2. Bring all your ingredients (Mt. Tam, Jam and Prosciutto to room temp) before serving and assembling.
  3. Bring it all together by topping with lemon zest, olive oil, salt and pepper. These finishing touches are ESSENTIAL, and make this appetizer addicting.

  1. Hello – Mt. Tam is the brand! That’s where I’m from – I think it’s just brie cheese though. But I understand it doesn’t say brie on the package! haha but I think that will be confusing for most folks cause Mt. Tam cheese is only sold at very few locations. But I seriously LOVE your tik tok and your whole vibe I think I’m going to be a follower for life! You’re an artsit!

    1. Mt. Tam is a little bit different than Brie, and for this recipe I used Mt. Tam, the brand is Cowgirl Creamery! However, you can definitely use any triple creme cheese or brie! Thank you for your comment and follow, looking forward to staying connecting. 🙂
