CROSTINI w/Goat Cheese~Tomato ~Basil & Balsamic Glaze RECIPE
From a tiny BEACH kitchen…
I needed a quick and easy appetizer to bring to Easter dinner. Krisann deserves the credit for this recipe. The bread and basil are super fresh. The goat cheese is pricey but makes a big difference in taste and is easy to spread on the baked bread. Just delicious! The basil and balsamic glaze are sprinkled on top. The plate looks amazing without a lot of effort. Which was a good thing- this Easter morning it was 55 degrees on our porch! Yeah summer! There were kids playing on the beach with dogs and easter baskets in tow.
- French Bagette, sliced thin
- Fresh basil
- Cherry Tomatoes, halved
- Herb Goat Cheese
- Balsamic Glaze
- Olive Oil Spray
- Salt and Pepper
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Put sliced bread on cookie sheet. Spray with Olive oil, sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper. Bake 5 minutes. Use tongs and flip bread slices. Bake 3 more minutes. Meanwhile cut tomatoes in half and sliver the basil.
Spread each cooked bagette with goat cheese. Top with half a cherry tomato. Sprinkle sliced fresh basil over the tomatoes.- Do NOT used dried basil. It won’t taste or look the same. Then simply drizzle a small amount of balsamic glaze over the top. Serve on a long platter with fresh basil tucked in a corner ~ The presentation is beautiful. ~ ENJOY!
