Melt butter and combine with olive oil, brush baguette rounds with the oil and butter mixture, par cook the crostini until lightly toasted, 5-6 minutes.Remove the crostini from the oven and to 1/3 of them spoon on about a tablespoon of the bacon onion jam. Top 1/3 of the crostini with sliced brie, and to the other 1/3 add a small stack of shaved prime rib. Return the crostini to the 425 degree oven and warm for another minute or two. Transfer to a serving platter and finish assembly as follows.
