I first read this ingredient list and went , "Huh?". Prosciutto, apricot, and cheese sounded like a strange combination...but sometimes those turn out to be surprisingly delicious. These turned out to be refreshingly delectable, and the flavors blend together quite well and don't taste as an odd match whatsoever. I guess I can't be too shocked, being that this is a Giada recipe I had a certain trust level in it to begin with. This is a great Spring/Summer appetizer being that they are light and not too filling.
-1 loaf French bread with sesame seeds
-4-5 tablespoons apricot preserves
-1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
-4-5 thin slice prosciutto
1. Slice French bread loaf into thin crisps. Drizzle with EVOO and broil about 4-5 minutes until just slightly browned.
2. Remove from oven and top with shredded cheese. Return to the broiler and broil an additional 4-5 minutes until cheese is browned and bubbly. Remove and top with the preserves and a slice or two of the prosciutto. Server immediately.
