You know those times where you offer to bring something to a dinner party but you don’t really think through how busy you are going to be that day? Yeah, me too.
That’s where these little guys come in. I love crostini as an appetizer because you can do so much with them. They are more than just bruschetta. You can make them sweet or savory. Lots of ingredients or just a few. It is so easy to make to your tastes.
I was, as usual, running behind for a dinner party we were invited to. But these take so little time to put together that it wasn’t a problem still getting out of the door on time.
Even easier? This wonderful bottle of balsamic glaze from Trader Joes. I didn’t have to sit and wait for the balsamic vinegar to reduce and cool.
1 French baguette
5oz block of goat cheese
1 pint strawberries
Balsamic glaze (made yourself or store-bought)
Fresh mint leaves, minced
Cut your baguette into 1/4″ slices
