Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
I love recipes with versatility. There’s nothing better than having a basic recipe that can be modified to create several variations. This is one of those such recipes. For this tasty and simple appetizer I used garlic and fresh parsley. However, the pairings with the goat cheese are practically endless! But in the effort to not make this post endless, I’ll just name a few. Feel free to chime in other combinations in the comments though!
**When combining it with herbs, make sure to use fresh. Dried herbs will get lost and their flavor won’t come through as well.
Goat Cheese Crostini — modified from Cooking Light Magazine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut baguette into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay flat on a cookie sheet and toast in oven for 10 minutes.
Combine goat cheese, parsley, and garlic together in a medium bowl. Stir until well combined and soft.
Spread goat cheese mixture evenly on baguette slices.
If desired, pop back into oven for 5-7 minutes to cook the goat cheese ever so slightly. (This is my personal preference but it also tastes quite good without this last step).
