It was 90 and sunny yesterday, but 50 and rainy today? How does that happen!? Instead of going for a walk this morning, I sat inside drinking coffee and cleaning out my computer’s photo albums. As I was going through older folders, I found one with a recipe that I forgot to post last spring. I wasn’t going to blog this weekend, but it only made sense to post a quick recipe since I’ll be stuck inside for the rest of this rainy day.
When I was in D.C. last spring, we went to one of my favorite spots for dinner, Founding Farmers. We ordered “table farm bread” as an appetizer (Picture of restaurant starter is above.) The toasted bread was topped with prosciutto, figs, mascarpone and balsamic. The combination was so delicious and I wanted to recreate it when I got home. It was such an easy appetizer to make and it would be great for a last-minute party snack.
All you need: French Baguette, Mascarpone, Prosciutto, Figs, and Balsamic. I actually mixed fig balsamic with regular balsamic, but that is optional.
Slice the baguettes into squares. Place the squares on a baking sheet and bake for ten minutes at 300 degrees.
Spread the mascarpone over the baguette, and top with prosciutto, fig slices, and a drizzle of balsamic.
So quick and tasty for parties. These are so good with red wine 😉
Another one of my favorite last minute party starters are these smoked salmon baguettes with lemon garlic cream cheese! You can find the recipe here!
Questions for you!
What is your favorite last-minute party snack?
Prosciutto or Smoked Salmon?
