Flatbread With Prosciutto, Apples, English Cheddar & Pear Jam

I've made this flatbread appetizer on several occasions. It's easy to put together, and great for a savory side dish for a party. I love the layers of the different flavors and textures - flat bread, fig jam, cheddar, prosciutto, apples, and arugula.

I recommend using a crisp, sweet variety of apple, such as Fuji or Honeycrisp. If you have never paired prosciutto with fruit, it is a lovely experience. Fig jam can be found in Whole Foods or Trader Joe's, or can be substituted with another type of fruit spread.
