Goat Cheese and Honey Crostini
Easy, Tangy, Sweet, Crunchy and Delicious. Welcome Back to Football Friday and the Game Day Recipe. Goat Cheese and Honey Crostini will become your new “go to” appetizer. This is one of my personal recipes. It amazes me that only three ingredients can become so delicious. Three of my favorite variations on this recipe are; blueberry-vanilla goat cheese with blueberry honey, fig and olive goat cheese with buckwheat honey and lemon goat cheese with ginger honey.
With only four ingredients, this simple yet delicious appetizer couldn’t get any easier. Purchase a French baguette at your favorite bakery. Slice it diagonally into 1/2 inch slices, brush the slices with olive oil and bake until crisp, 5-8 minutes. Spread the slices with your favorite garlic and herb goat cheese, and drizzle with some honey. Since there are only a handful of ingredients in this “recipe,” we went with local honey and goat cheese.
Local Goat Cheese and Honey
Two of our favorites are Montchevre and La Clare Family Creamery. Montchevre and La Clare Family goat cheese can be purchased at Trigs in Rhinelander WI or stop at their cheese shops or purchase online. We have several favorite honey “spots” but on our last trip to Rhinelander we stopped at Hansen Honey Farm and purchased some honey. Located on Highway 8, Hansen Honey Farm Has super fantastic honey.
Georgian Bay Honey
While on a recent trip to Canada, visiting my friend Cindy in Wiarton Ontario, we stopped at Georgian Bay Honey Farm. Located in Owen Sound Ontario, I was fortunate enough to bring some of their fabulous honey home with me. The next time I visit Cindy, I’m going to drive and fill my car with this golden liquid!!
