Under 30 Minutes
- 1/2 small baguette (about 8 ounces), cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 1 tablespoon coarse salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- 12 fresh basil leaves
- 4 ounces very thinly sliced prosciutto
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly brush both sides of each bread slice with oil. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Toast in oven until pale golden, about 7 minutes per side. Transfer sheet to a wire rack; let crostini cool completely.
Divide basil leaves and folded slices of prosciutto among crostini. Drizzle with oil. Season with pepper.
