Do you love prosciutto? How about goat cheese? We love them both, so should you! I made some prosciutto crostini with goat cheese, spinach and caramelized onions for our breakfast and they were so GOOD! And so simple! The best part? You can make them so quickly and they look really nice. I think these would be a great appetizer for parties or afternoon snacks.
Take a one bite of this and you will discover amazing flavors. The sweetness of the caramelized onions, creaminess of the goat cheese, saltiness of the prosciutto make this super simple appetizer a real winner. The result is a rich taste that I absolutely love. Yum! Definitely give them a try! 😉

In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, honey and 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. In a small pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and add the garlic and red onion. Cook until tender and slightly translucent.
