This Cranberry Goat Cheese Crostini is a super quick and easy 10-minute appetiser that’s bound to please your guests! It’s great for using up leftover cranberry sauce!
Happy almost 2017! I hope your Christmas holidays were full of love and laughter and endless amounts of these cookies, these cookies, and this eggnog. I have one more recipe to share before we dip into the New Year – this Cranberry Goat Cheese Crostini. Super quick, as easy as spreading jam on toast and done in no time. Oh and did I mention – it’s also so delicious! Here’s the thing about the holidays. After Thanksgiving you end up with so much leftover cranberry sauce, and if you make it again for Christmas, same “problem”. I mean, it isn’t really an issue in this house because I just spread it on all the sandwiches. What is does mean is that you can make these cranberry goat cheese crostini in no time because it consists of cranberry sauce, goat cheese, and a baguette. So easy. Making the actual dish is as easy as bringing the ingredients to room temperature, toasting the bread for five minutes, and then spreading on the goat cheese, and then the cranberry sauce. You could as easily use vegan cheese such as my homemade cheese ball or even a delight you found at the grocery store. P.S. That black soapstone piece that these are sitting on is actually designed to bake the bread on, AND keep the appetisers warm for up to 30 minutes. Highly recommend it for future appetisers. Not that these even lasted 30 minutes in our house…
P.S. Here are some of the items I used to make this recipe if you’d like to use them too:
