These Goat Cheese Crostini are the perfect Holiday appetizer. Crostini is smothered in whipped goat cheese and topped with prosciutto and fresh sage. Your tastebuds will go wild with this easy appetizer. 


  • 1 loaf of skinny crusty french baguette
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon sage, minced
  • 6 slices of prosciutto, preferably parma ham (3 ounce package) 
  • 8 ounces plain goat cheese
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Optional: Balsamic Glaze for topping


  1. Remove the goat cheese from the fridge and allow it to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to starting the recipe. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare 2 baking trays. Line one with parchment paper. On the parchment lined tray, spread the prosciutto flat onto the tray.
  2. To make the crostini, slice the french bread into 1 inch slices on an angle, and place onto the other cookie sheet. Brush each side lightly in olive oil and sprinkle on sea salt.
  3. Bake until the prosciutto is crispy and the french bread is golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. While the bread and prosciutto are baking, add the goat cheese, honey, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes into the food processor on low speed until combined and whipped.
  5. Cut the crispy prosciutto into strips.
  6. Top each crostini with the creamy goat cheese spread, then crispy prosciutto and fresh sage.
  7. Transfer the goat cheese crostini to a serving tray. Optional: Drizzle over Balsamic glaze. Enjoy! 


  • If you cut the french baguette in skinny slices, the baking time for the bread will be less, check them between 5-8 minutes. 
  • Sage has a strong taste. Chop it finely for topping to not overpower the other flavors. 
  • This appetizer is best served immediately after baking, hot and fresh. If you need to bring it to a party, you could prep the goat cheese and prosciutto ahead of time and do the toasting at the event.
