Crostini With Goat Cheese

Dave loves these so much we had crostinis with goat cheese for lunch two days in a row! today he added bacon!

We love summer! The fresh tomatoes and peppers are ripening this week! We have waited all these months. Dave has babied his plants and watched with an eagle eye for every need they may have. His reward is here! Our Tiburon peppers and Arbason Tomatoes are gracing these Crostinis today. The flavor is out of this world delicious!

Arbason tomatoes

We love the flavor of our greenhouse grown Arbason tomatoes!

Tiburon Pepper

Tiburon peppers have a tiny bit of heat but taste great fresh, in slices.

 

 

These are the toppings we will be using today…along with a bit of bacon, (Dave’s idea).

Crostini Toppings

These are the topping we will choose from today

Crostini with goat cheese

We have never tried crostinis before. We decided to give them a try because they are toast(which we love) in a brand new way! Use an Artisan bread like this one, baked in the oven and brushed with a high quality organic extra virgin olive oil infused with our homegrown herbs. Yum!! Dave brought home some goat cheese from the store the other night with a loaf of fantastic artisan bread. This seemed like the perfect moment to leap into a new dimension in our menu.

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Slice the bread into 1/2 inch slices (or 1/4 inch for very small 2 inch diameter appetizers)
  • Brush the bread with olive oil on one side, let soak in a bit, and arrange on baking sheet oil side down.
  • Brush the top side of the bread with oil.
  • Bake 15 minutes until the bread is golden brown and toasted. Cool.
  • Meanwhile prepare your toppings as desired.
  • Spread the crostinis with goat cheese.
  • Top as desired
  • Garnish the crostinis as desired with fresh herbs
  • Sprinkle with balsamic vinegar
Crostini with Goat Cheese

Look at that perfectly toasted crostini spread with goat cheese. So good!

 

We have had goat cheese in salads and thought it ok. But this is the first time we have used it for a spread. Goat cheese is good! At least the brand we tried was. Not too strong or goaty. A nice mild cheese with just a bit of tang to perfectly offset our toppings and the balsamic vinegar. Perfect!

I think you can top anything with fresh garden tomatoes and goat cheese and it's going to be delicious! The artisan bread was just an extra bonus!
