Whether you stay up till midnight or turn in early, your recipe and post should be an ode to your family's New Year's Eve traditions."
These are so tasty!! The crispy baguette slices, gooey brie and chewy slightly salty ham with that delicious fig jam. It's just reallllly happy together. I was envisioning using this as a base for poached eggs for an iteration of eggs benedict too. I ate my fair share of these. They're easily adjusted to any size of baguette / bread base and you could use other jam flavors but the fig is really lovely with the brie.

Ham and Brie Crostini with Jam
24 (1/4-inch thick) baguette slices
1/4 - 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
3/4 pound ham slices, cut into 24 pieces
9 ounces Brie cheese, sliced and cut into 24 pieces
1/4 cup fig jam
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place baguette slices on a baking tray or two (to fit without crowding). Brush both sides of slices with olive oil and bake 10-12 minutes or until toasted.
- Divide the slices of cheese and top with ham on each baguette slice and bake another 5-8 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Add a drizzle of jam to each crostini and serve warm!
