Every host needs an arsenal of quick and easy, but totally impressive recipes. The type of recipe that looks as though it took hours of hard work, but was in truth ready to go in a matter of minutes.

This “Fig and Pig” crostini is just that. A simple goat cheese spread is whipped up while the bread is in the oven crisping, and the crostini is built by simply layering the spread, fig jam, prosciutto and greens on top of one another. Since the crostini is so simple, it’s important to use the best ingredients you can get your hands on. Goat cheese from a local farm, high-quality fig jam and freshly cut prosciutto will go a long way in this appetizer.

The creamy, luscious goat cheese spread, salty prosciutto and sophisticatedly sweet fig jam are rounded out perfectly by a red wine with an elegant fruit profile, such as Prophecy Pinot Noir.

Figs are still in season through the end of October in many parts of the country — if you can find them, slice them in half and serve alongside the crostini for a stunning display.
