Ham and Roasted Pear Crostini

Makes 2 dozen
Time 45 min
Though these small bites are perfectly tasty made with an ordinary French baguette, choose a whole wheat or seeded one for a bit more flavor.

Method

Preheat the oven to 425°F. 

Brush baguette slices all over with oil and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. 

Bake, flipping halfway through, until just crisp, about 5 to 7 minutes; set aside. 

In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, maple syrup, salt and pepper to make a dressing. 

Toss pears in half the dressing and arrange in a single layer on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet. 

Roast, flipping pears halfway through, until tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes. 

Toss parsley with remaining dressing. 

Top each crostini with a piece of ham and then a wedge of pear and few leaves of parsley.
