Tapas with Prosciutto

Tapas are basically appetizers or snacks that came about because you should never, ever drink on an empty stomach, right? Usually, the main ingredients are bread, cheese and meat of some kind. This book the BF got me while he was in Barcelona has a little bit more about the history but I’ll cut right to the chase!

The thing I love about tapas is that you really can add and mix and match whatever you want. I have an obsession with prosciutto so I added it last minute but it can be omitted.

Goat cheese and onion tapa

What you’ll need: 

  • rustic style bread (I used a firm baguette)
  • goat cheese
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • prosciutto
  1. Slice the baguette at a diagonal and arrange on a baking sheet (parchment paper would help here!)
  2. In a skillet, cook the onion in the oil until the onion is transparent and soft.
  3. Add the chopped garlic and mix gently (low heat here folks!). You don’t want to burn or brown the garlic.
  4. Take the onion + garlic mix and spread on top of the bread slices with a spoon.
  5. Top with sliced goat cheese (if you have a softer goat cheese, just tear off pieces – it doesn’t need to be pretty).
  6. Bake in the oven at 200 degrees for a few minutes, just until the goat cheese is warm and soft.
  7. Top with pieces of prosciutto and enjoy!

This is a good appetizer for a larger group of people but honestly, we made it dinner for two!
