This fabulous appetizer was actually a last minute idea that came to me when trying to figure out what to do with an extra loaf of french bread. I already had everything I needed to make Blueberry Goat Cheese Crostini 🙂
My grocery order left me with that extra loaf of bread so I had two options…freeze it or make something yummy.
Obviously I went with the make something yummy 😉
As I went through my fridge and stumbled upon goat cheese crumbles and blueberry preserves I knew they would pair perfectly as a crostini.
Bonus that I had basil growing in my garden for a tasty garnish.
Here’s how to make them…
Slice the french baguette into half inch slices and lay them on a baking sheet.
Then brush the top of each slice with some olive oil.
And a little sprinkle of kosher salt and pepper over top.
Then into a 400 degree oven for 4 to 5 minutes. Just enough time to crisp them slightly.
Add some goat cheese crumbles over top of the bread and then back into the oven for a few minutes to melt them just a bit.
You could use spreadable goat cheese in place of the crumbles too.
In that case you can skip putting them back into the oven for the last few minutes.
Next comes the blueberry preserves, which is super yummy with the creamy goat cheese.
Spoon a little over top of each.
And finally top with fresh basil for the show stopping finale!
Blueberry Goat Cheese Crostini are just as scrumptious as they are gorgeous 🙂
