“The Tomato, Blue Cheese and Prosciutto Bruschetta to me is the ultimate last minute appetizer when friends come over. It is easy and simple to put together and the Muir Glen Tomatoes help give it great big and bold flavors.” —Chef Scott Pampuch

Preparation & Directions

  1. In 1-quart saucepan, mix sweet and sour sauce ingredients. Simmer over medium heat about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce coats back of spoon.

  2. Heat oven to 400°F. Cut bread into 1-inch slices; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush both sides of each bread slice with olive oil; sprinkle 1 side of each with pepper. Toast in oven 5 to 7 minutes or until light brown.

  3. Spoon 1 teaspoon drained tomatoes onto each toasted bread slice; top with crumbled blue cheese and prosciutto strips. Drizzle with sweet and sour sauce.
