Prosciutto-Wrapped Avocado Crostini with Balsamic Glaze
Prep time 12 mins Cook time 10 mins Total time 22 mins Yield: 4-5 appetizer servings
Half of a large baguette loaf
2 Tbsp olive oil, for brushing
1 ripe avocado, cut into slices
3-4 prosciutto slices, cut into 1 ½"-wide strips
Balsamic glaze (store-bought or homemade)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Slice baguette on the diagonal in slices about ¼" thick and brush both sides of each slice with olive oil. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet in a single layer and toast 10-15 minutes, or until the bread is slightly golden in color and lightly toasted (not too crisp). Let cool.
Slice avocado into thin wedges and slice each piece of prosciutto into three equally-sized strips, length-wise. Wrap each avocado wedge with a strip of prosciutto. Place prosciutto-wrapped avocado wedge on a piece of toasted bread.
Before serving, drizzle balsamic glaze over top of each crostini.
