Frankies Spuntino
is a cozy Italian restaurant in the West Village, owned by two guys named Frank. All their food is rich and delicious (our favorites include the meatball sandwich and cavatelli with sausage), but the secret star of the menu are these Ricotta, Honey & Provolone Crostini. THEY ARE JUST SO GOOD. So! I’ve been trying to reverse engineer them so we can make them at home…

Here’s what I’ve come up with…

Ricotta, Honey & Provolone Crostini

Cut a crusty baguette into slices on an angle. Toast in a toaster oven for a few minutes until warm and crispy. Then top with a healthy dollop of good-quality fresh ricotta, a drizzle of honey and a couple pieces of provolone cut into sticks.

Thoughts? Any other tips? Wouldn’t they be great to set out when friends come over? Just add some white wine and Prosciutto slices and you’re good to go.

P.S. More fun food posts
