I meant to share this recipe with a set of images featuring a local goat cheese company as part of my Local Spotlight series. The images being a year old, I haven’t looked at them in awhile and took for granted that they would be safely stored on my computer. What a disappointment it was to discover that the entire album is missing. There should be a backup file somewhere and hopefully I’ll be able to share a new Local Spotlight post soon.
In the meantime, these crostini are good enough to stand on their own. Goat cheese, grapes and honey are wonderful together and layered atop toasted baguette slices, they are fit for holiday company. The grapes get a little oven time with the cheese but just long enough to warm them up. The best part about this appetizer is how easy it is to put together. Preheating the oven will be your biggest chore but you’ll appreciate the reward. Serve with your favorite bottle of wine and enjoy!
These are a slight variation on one of my favorite crostini in the archives: Gorgonzola and Honey Toast.
Goat Cheese, Grape and Honey Crostini
- Baguette slices
- Goat cheese
- Grapes halved
- olive oil
Preheat your oven to 375℉. Brush the top sides of the baguette slices with a little olive oil then arrange on a baking tray. Toast for about 6 minutes then pull the tray out of the oven.
Spread goat cheese on the toasted slices then top with grape halves. Return the toasts to the oven and bake for another 5-6 minutes. Remove from the oven and drizzle with a little honey before serving.
