A simple and delicious goat cheese crostini appetizer with fresh pears and prosciutto.



  • 1 baguette or french bread loaf, sliced
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup goat cheese
  • 1 large pear, thinly sliced
  • 8 oz. thin prosciutto


  1. On a large baking sheet, lay sliced bread out in a single layer and brush the tops with olive oil.
  2. Bake at 375 for 5-10 minutes, until bread is toasted and golden brown
  3. Spread a spoonful of goat cheese over each crostini piece, then top with a piece of prosciutto and 2 or 3 slices of pear. Serve immediately.


I used a crusty french bread loaf for the crostini in the photos, and it was great for a main-dish-sized version of this dish. If you’re entertaining, though, a baguette will give you more crostini and bite-sized appetizers are always a great choice for guests.
