Ingredients 

For the Crostinis:

Package of Crostinis from your favorite bakery (I like to get them at Harmons, you can always make them on your own too)

For the Drizzle:

1 T. Fig Jam

1 T. Balsamic Vinegar

1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup of sugar

Directions

1. Spread a thin layer of fig jam on the crostinis, place a half or a third of a single slice of prosciutto on, then a slice of fontina on top of that.

2. To make the balsamic reduction/glaze put the vinegar and sugar in a pot. Let it come to a boil, then reduce. Add in the honey and balsamic and let the reduction thicken on a lower heat till it coats the back of the spoon.

3. Drizzle the glaze on top and eat!
