Roasted Strawberry, Basil and Goat Cheese Crostini

Why not try a twist on the typical Crostini? Lee and I did, and it has become one of our go-to snacks

  5 Oz. Goat Cheese
1 Lb. Strawberries, hulled and cut into bite size pieces
2 Tbsp. Honey
2 Tbsp EVOO
1 baguette cut into ½ inch slices
Handful of fresh basil leaves, torn into little pieces
Fresh ground black pepper
 

Put the Oven on 350 degrees. Line two rimmed baking sheets with parchment to make clean up easy.  

On one baking sheet toss the strawberries with honey, spread them in a single layer and bake on the upper rack of the oven till tender and juicy. About 20 – 25 minutes. Toss the berries half-way through the baking.  

On the remaining baking sheet, brush EVOO on each slice of bread and bake in the middle of the oven until toasts are golden 10 – 12 minutes.  

Once toasts are cool, top each with a smear of goat cheese, followed by a spoonful of roasted strawberries and their juices. Sprinkle the torn basil and black pepper over the crostini and serve immediately.  

We enjoy this light snack with a glass of Prosecco, and we hope you enjoy this recipe too. Cheers!
