When it comes to entertaining, Spring and Summer is when I absolutely love to do it most! Now that Summer is officially in full effect, I just had to share with you my Peach and Prosciutto Stuffed French Baguette that guests just flock to EVERY SINGLE TIME! This is the perfect appetizer, that will keep your guests satisfied while you’re working on the main entree.
I absolutely adore this dish because it is SO easy to throw together. I typically do so about 20-30 minutes before my guests are due to arrive. Essentially, you’re just mixing the spices, honey, and olive oil with the ricotta, stuffing everything into the sliced french baguette, bake it for a few, top with fresh ingredients, and you are done!
What will ensure that you achieve the perfect Peach and Prosciutto Stuffed French Baguette?
- Use a fresh baguette. If it’s stale, then your finished product will be hard, instead of gooey and chewy.
- Use a robust extra virgin olive oil. You want the olive oil to be rich in flavor.
- Make sure your peaches aren’t too ripe. I find that a crisp peach slice goes well with the chewy bread and the gooey cheese.
How should I serve this Peach and Prosciutto Stuffed French Baguette to my guests?
- I like to serve on a cutting board, or a nice platter.
- Have more fresh peaches and basil displayed around the bread.
- Have some extra ricotta mix nearby just in case people want to go to get extra cheese.
- Garnish the cutting board or platter with extra basil.
Peach and Prosciutto Stuffed French Baguette
1 French Baguette
Fresh Basil Leaves
1c Ricotta Cheese
10oz Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
1tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1tbs Raw Honey
Pinch of Salt
10–12 thin slices of Prosciutto
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, olive oil, honey, salt, and pepper. Sit to the side.
Slice peaches into small wedges. Sit to the side.
Make slices in your French Baguette about 1.5 inches apart.
Inside of each slice spread ricotta mixture, add a slice of mozzarella cheese, and a slice of prosciutto.
Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted and the bread is slightly toasted.
Once you take out your baguette, carefully add slices of fresh peaches and basil leaves to each slice.
Drizzle a bit of olive oil on top, and serve immediately.
