Peach, Bacon and Ricotta Crostini

Peach, Bacon and Ricotta Crostini

Crostini is an Italian appetizer made out of small slices of grilled or toasted bread topped with an array of choices such as cheeses, meats, fruits, vegetables and herbs. Today we will be making some ciabatta based crostini topped with ricotta, peach and bacon, an excellent combination of contrasting flavours which enhances every element on this humble grilled bread. Usually you can serve this as an appetizer or as a side with pasta.


12 slices ciabatta
12 slices bacon
12 tbsp fresh ricotta
1 can peach slices
freshly ground black pepper
sea salt
olive oil


1. Fry or fan bake bacon until crispy, once cooked set it aside.
2. Brush olive oil on ciabatta then grill in low heat.
3. Spoon 1 tbsp ricotta in each ciabatta then sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper.
4. Place bacon on top of ricotta.
5. Place 2-3 slices of peaches on top.
6. Sprinkle sea salt on top then serve.

  1. I love the combination of sweet in savory or vice-versa…looks great this crostinis…great for appetizers.
    Hope you are having a great week Raymund :)

  2. Perfect combo of flavours. This recipe makes me miss summer. I bet this would be a great one to adapt to the BBQ to nibble on with a cider while your guests arrive and dinner is being cooked.

  3. I LOVE these! This is the kind of thing I like to make for lunch, so it’s going into my lunch ideas! Love the sweetness of the peaches and the salt bacon. Fabulous!
