Crostini with Peaches, Ricotta, Prosciutto, Honey and Basil

I am a sucker for crostini! I mean, who doesn’t love bread and cheese together!? It is a perfect blank canvas to add anything and everything you like. I think I got everything I possibly could in this one; crunchy bread, creamy ricotta, salty prosciutto, fruity peaches, herbaceous basil, sweet honey, and a kiss of tart lemon juice (optional for us lemon lovers). All that in just a few bites!

Crostini are really easy appetizers to have around when entertaining. You don’t have to worry about them being warm, and you can make a bunch of different kinds. For this one specifically, you could do some without the meat for vegetarians. These can also be made under the broiler in the oven, but I really love grilling the bread. There is something magical that happens when you grill bread.
