This Prosciutto and Ricotta Toast Recipe with Honey Roasted Tomatoes is made with sourdough bread or a baguette, ricotta, lemon, honey, and basil.


  • 1 sourdough bread, sliced and toasted
  • 1/4 - 1/2 pound sliced prosciutto
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese


  • 3 Roma or Beefsteak tomatoes, sliced
  • Olive oil, as needed
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Honey Lemon Sauce:

  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil


  1. Bake the prosciutto. Cook prosciutto for 8-10 minutes at 375 F and set on a plate with a paper towel.
  2. Bake the tomatoes. Switch oven temperature to 400 F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange the tomato slices in a single layer, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of honey and olive oil as needed. Bake for 25-35 minutes.
  3. Make the sauce. In a small saucepan, heat together 1/4 cup honey, 1 teaspoon lemon zest and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a small saucepan over low heat. Bring to a quick simmer and remove from heat quickly.
  4. Make the dressing. In a small bowl, add the cut up basil, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Pour the honey, lemon zest and juice into the bowl.
  5. Combine tomatoes & dressing. When the tomatoes are roasted, add them into the bowl with the dressing.
  6. Assemble the Ricotta Toast. Spread the ricotta cheese on a piece of toast. Top with the Tomatoes and Prosciutto.


  • When you heat up the lemon and honey, make sure to time it when the tomatoes and bread are fresh out the oven. 
  • Add as much or as little prosciutto as you would like
