Equipment

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces goat cheese log
  • 1 tablespoon whipped cream cheese
  • 12 ounces French baguette sliced - I used 2 (6 ounce each) demi baguettes.
  • 1 cup baby arugula
  • 3 ounces prosciutto cut into smaller pieces
  • 2 peaches sliced
  • balsamic glaze for drizzling
  • fresh basil leaves garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375° and arrange the slices of baguette on a rimmed metal baking sheet. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through until lightly toasted.
    Let cool slightly.
  • In a food processor, combine goat cheese and whipped cream cheese and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go.
  • Spread a teaspoon or so of the whipped goat cheese on the toasted baguette slices.
  • Then top with small pieces of prosciutto, a few arugula leaves, and a slice of fresh peach.
  • Drizzle with the balsamic glaze, top with torn fresh basil and some freshly ground black pepper.
