Goat Cheese Crostini



At Christmas I got to taste some French delicacies - my aunt, cousin and his family arrived from France to spend Christmas with us in Finland. These goat cheese crostinis surprised me (who usually avoids anything that has to do with goat cheese), since they tasted really delicious!

They make a lovely starter / appetizer, as well as a nice late night supper. It takes about an quater of an hour to prepare them.



Ingredients:
bread (I chose a baguette)
goat cheese
honey
olive oil
salt and pepper
fresh (or dried) herbs, I had some basil, my cousin used rosemary

some lettuce to go with

Preparation:
- Slice the bread
- Cut about 1 cm thick slices of goat cheese on top of the bread pieces
- Put some honey on the top of the goat cheese
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper (my cousin put a few whole rose-peppercorns - that tasted good!)
- Add herbs on top of the goat cheese
- Pour some olive oil on the bread beside the cheese
- Bake at 200 degrees for about 7-9 min., until the cheese softens and the edges of the bread become golden brown.

Serve the Goast Cheese Crostinis warm with some salad.




... Goat Cheese Crostinis would serve as an delicate appetizer for New Year's Eve :-)

PS: I printed these nice New Year's Eve's decorations that I will glue to toothpicks, that can be inserted to bread, sushi rolls, fruit or olives -  whatever you're serving! You can print them from Paper and Pigtails.
