Strawberry Basil Crostini


One of my favorite meals of all time is just a table full of appetizers. It's such a fun way to get bites of a lot of different flavors, and everyone can decide how little (or how much!) they want to eat! A few weeks ago I shared super delicious Fig, Brie & Prosciutto Rolls, which are perfect for an appetizer party! And today's recipe are these seriously delicious Strawberry Basil Crostini. A perfect mix of sweet from the fruit and savory from the cheese, your guests will never want cocktail hour to end!

I'm so excited to serve these crostini at spring picnics, summer brunches and Mother's Day! Can I tell you a secret though - I'm not usually a fan of goat cheese. Or stronger cheeses in general. But in these, I'm obsessed. I use cream cheese mixed with the goat cheese to soften the flavor, and it's beyond delicious. With the strawberries and basil - total perfection! But honestly I also ate the leftovers it on its own with crackers!






Ingredients: 

1/2 half cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honeyA fresh baguette
4 oz herb and garlic goat cheese, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 bunch fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
12 strawberries, thinly sliced

Directions:

Combine the balsamic vinegar and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously, for about 5 minutes or until the mixture is thickened. Allow to cool completely.

Combine the goat cheese and cream cheese in a medium bowl with a spatula. Slice the baguette, and toast in the oven at 350 for about 5 minutes if you'd like the bread to be toasty, but keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn. Spread each piece of bread with a generous amount of the cheese, and top with the sliced strawberries and basil. Drizzle the balsamic blaze over each piece just before serving.
