Easy, delicious appetizer using spicy, capicola ham. Make sure you use fresh basil, as the flavors will not be the same if you use dried. These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated, but be sure to bring them up to room temperature before serving to blend the flavors.

Directions

  1. Slice baguette on the diagonal into 25 slices about 1 inch thick. Spread slices generously with cream cheese.
  2. Place a single basil leaf on top of the cream cheese and press down slightly so basil adheres to cheese. Top with a thin slice of capicola.

We made these for a New Years party. They were a big hit with the party goers and super easy to make. We used mascarpone cheese instead since we had it in the fridge but I'm sure it would be great with cream cheese.

Very good and so easy! I used 2 basil leaves per bread slice and served them with sliced cantaloupe. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy, easy and my guests cleaned the plate. I did half capicola and half sopressato. Sopressato went first. Took another's advice, 2 basil leaves (one is too subtle) and served with melon slices. I gave 5 stars for the quick easy and relatively inexpensive idea.
