Brie Prosciutto Honey Crostini-1-2

A few weekends ago, my girlfriends and I went wine tasting in Dundee, Oregon. While I normally pack a picnic for the occasion, we were right in the middle of the move to our new house, and I just did the easy thing – I went to the store and grabbed us some sandwiches. Of course, not just any sandwiches would do… I went to the fancy grocery store – The one where I once purchased celery root for this Apple & Celery Root Slaw and it cost me $60 (given I made a triple batch, but still)!

Anyway, the fancy grocery store had these fancy sandwiches that just blew my mind. They were simple: A bit of brie, some prosciutto and basil.

That first bite? It was amazing!

A perfect creamy, salty, savory combination with a hint of something extra. What was that magical ingredient? Honey. Somehow, the honey just tied everything together so perfectly, and it was amazing with all of the wines we were sampling in wine country that day.

That sandwich is what inspired this recipe. Why not make it in a smaller form, that’s perfect for serving as an elegant appetizer?

These Brie Crostini with Prosciutto & Honey have become my go-to party appetizer, not only because they pair with a wide variety of wines, but also because they’re easy to prepare and extremely elegant. You can even assemble them well ahead of time, which is always a plus in my book.
