Goat Cheese and Honey Crostini
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.
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.
Super easy and so delicious!
