Ingredients

  • 1 ounce prosciutto
  • 3/4 cup ricotta*
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • 3 peaches, thinly sliced
  • 5-7 thick slices crusty, grainy bread*
  • 1/4 cup roasted, salted pistachios, chopped
  • fresh basil
  • sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375℉. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place prosciutto slices on the baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes, or until crispy and golden.

  2. While prosciutto is baking, make the whipped ricotta. Combine ricotta, honey, and a pinch of salt in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Season to taste with additional salt if desired.

  3. To assemble, spread a generous amount of whipped ricotta on the toasts, followed by the sliced peaches. Crush the prosciutto into little pieces and sprinkle over the toasts along with the pistachios. Garnish with a few leaves of fresh basil and another drizzle of honey. Enjoy immediately!

Recipe Notes

*Make sure you use whole milk ricotta for this, not the part skim stuff. The whole milk ricotta is so much creamier and better!
*I love using a super seedy, hearty multigrain bread for this, but anything you like will work! You can even make these into little crostini if you'd like!
