Crostini and Goat Cheese Platter

Our favorite way to eat goat cheese is to put it on a crostini and pair it with fruit and/or honey. The goat cheese we like best, is the soft, creamy kind called Chevre, which originated in France.  It usually comes in a log shape, is spreadable and is easily paired with other snacks.

Crostini is so easy to make and can be your vehicle for a variety of tasty ingredients.  To make Costini:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice 1 loaf of french bread into quarter inch thick slices. Lay bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and brush with good quality olive oil (do not saturate).  Sprinkle bread with kosher salt and bake in oven for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and let cool.

Serve crostini with an assortment of toppings:

  • apples, thinly sliced
  • peaches, thinly sliced
  • fig preserves
  • honey
  • prosciutto, thinly sliced

The best part is having each person create their own masterpiece.  Enjoy!
