Serrano ham, goats cheese and honey crostini
(Makes about 20)

The contrasting flavours and textures of these little bites makes for a delicious, impressive and easy snack with drinks.



About 20 baguette slices
3-4 slices of Serrano ham (or similar cured ham)
1 small log of goats cheese with a rind
runny honey
parsley and/or black pepper to garnish


Toast the baguettes slowly in a medium oven, turning once, until they are crisp through.

Slice the ham into pieces so that each slice of bread gets enough to nearly cover it.  Slice the goats cheese very thinly so that there is a slice for each piece of bread.  Cover the ham with the cheese. 

Place the toasts onto a baking sheet and pop them under a medium grill for 5 minutes or until the cheese is begnning to melt. 

Transfer to a serving plate, drizzle with honey and garnish with parsley and black pepper.  Serve hot.
