Ham, Goat Cheese and Cherry Crostinis




  • ½ cup unsweetened dried cherries
  • ½ cup cherry wine or sweet red wine
  • 1 baguette, sliced ½-1 inch thick
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Dash coarse salt
  • 4 oz creamy goat cheese
  • 2 oz smoked ham, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup unsalted nuts, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 Tbsp honey




  1. Place dried cherries and wine in a jar fitted with a lid. Allow cherries to soak for 2 or more hours, until plump. Drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake in the oven for 7-8 minutes, until crisp. Allow to cool.
  3. Spread a thick layer of goat cheese on each crostini. Top each with a slice of thin ham, a tablespoon of wine-soaked cherries, a teaspoon of nuts and a few thyme leaves. Drizzle each crostini with a teaspoon of honey and a dash of coarse salt. Serve.
