Crostini are an appetizer of Italian origin, consisting of small slices of toasted bread with various toppings. These Serrano Ham Crostini feature thin slices of toasted bread topped with fried serrano ham and drizzled with a caramelized white wine vinegar sauce. Serve these Serrano Ham Crostini with tomato sauce on the side for dipping. If you cannot find Serrano ham, you can also substitute with prosciutto, just be sure that whatever meat you end up using is very thinly sliced.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices serrano ham
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 bread (long slices, sliced finely)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 4 ounces white wine
  • tomato sauce (thick, for dipping)

Directions

  1. Fry the ham slices in oil heated on low heat until they change color. Remove from the oil and reserve covered so they do not cool down too much.
  2. In the same skillet, fry the bread on both sides and reserve covered so it also does not cool down.
  3. In the same skillet, add the sugar and caramelize it a bit. Remove the skillet from the flame and add the vinegar and white wine. Then add to the flame again and stir until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has reduced.
  4. Place the ham on top of the toast and sprinkle the sauce on top. Serve with tomato sauce for dipping.

I love the taste of this crostini by itself or dipped in the sauce. I used a salty country ham. Since the recipe does not recommend a bread, I tried a slightly textured white bread baguette. It fried right up, getting crispy but not hard. It tasted amazing. I think a cheese would fit right in with these ingredients too, like a Provolone or Monterey Jack. It truly is a treat I will make again and probably add cheese next time.
