Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Melt

by zesty on March 31, 2010 · 12 comments

Happy Wednesday to you! Before I get into an exciting yet simple bread recipe, you first have to remember to enter the Dempster’s Giveaway Contest. I cannot wait to have 4 people try this bread and let me know what you think.

Do you like Prosciutto Ham? Are you a big fan of goat cheese? If you are, then this recipe might be for you! Now me on the other hand – I tend to eat whatever is in front of me but I did really enjoy this loaf. One addition I would do in the future is to place some fresh basil leaves under the ham for additional flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 DEMPSTER’S® OvenFreshTM White or Multigrain Baguette
  • 2 Tbsp.  Olive oil
  • 1 Log Goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Fresh thyme leaves
  • 10 Thin Slices Prosciutto

Method

  1. PREHEAT oven to 400°F.
  2. SLICE baguette diagonally into ½ inch (1 cm) slices, about 20 slices. Brush on side of each slice with olive oil.
  3. SLICE goat cheese into ¼ inch (5 mm) slices and place one slice on each baguette round.
  4. SPRINKLE each round with a pinch of thyme and wrap ½ slice of prosciutto around the center of each slice of bread. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and sprinkle with remaining thyme leaves.
  5. DRIZZLE with remaining olive oil and bake for 8 minutes or until cheese is softened and baguette is hot and crisp.
  6. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: If you do not like goat cheese, simply replace with your favorite cheese.

Alright, so there you have it.  The contest ends today at 5:00pm Eastern.  Be sure to enter and I will announce the winners on Friday.  I will see you back on Friday with a dish from my latest Sunday cook-off.  Have a great mid week Wednesday.

Take care

zesty

love it!! Prosciutto, honestly, tastes good on anything including wrapped around figs and other fruits! Add in a baguette and goat cheese = perfection!

Wow, this sounds really unbelievable. I live in Spain, so would have to try this with Spanish jamon… My husband would probably kiss my feet for making it!

I am not a stinky cheese fan, but, I am slowly coming around to goat cheese (still NO to nasty blue cheese thought :D) Anyway – I bet adding some fig or a maple drizzle would make awesome too – the whole sweet/salty thing…maybe?

I LOVE the picture – great shot!

Those look amazing! It’d taste great with some arugala tucked into it as well!

Looks fantastic! I could see some fresh green onions too, if you don’t have fresh thyme to sprinkle on top.
