When I think of using goat cheese as part of a cracker platter, I often think about topping it with a compote. For this recipe I decided that I would switch it from a 2-piece (cheese and compote) to a 1-piece topping. Since I wanted the flavor of the fruit immersed in the goat cheese, I utilized my handy, dandy food processor. This netted a pinkish goat cheese spread. With a little bit of imagination you could even call it verging on holiday red.
What you're getting today is the light and slightly sweet goat cheese, just the right amount of crunch from the walnuts and a burst of fresh fruit. All on top of a crusty piece of bread. A.K.A a crostini. Cuz we're fancy like that.
SO, to please all the lovely ladies that came to the party and donated their hard earned money to this great cause, I headed to the grocery store to make the crostini. I got myself a french baguette, goat cheese, honey, walnuts, fresh fruit and basil and whipped these up to take to the party.
You toast the bread in the oven and while it's cooking you whip goat cheese with honey, mix in walnut and slice your fruit. When the oven clock dings you spread your goat cheese mixture all over the crusty bread and top with the fruit. Drizzle slightly with honey and top with basil if desired and BOOM.
This recipe is plucked straight from our local winery. Savory, tangy goat cheese is whipped up to airy perfection and smothered in a fresh roasted blueberry sauce. Top it off with a sprinkle of lemon zest and a drizzle of local honey for an extra special treat.
I have always enjoyed goat cheese, but I developed a special obsession appreciation for it when we were living in Paris. Every Tuesday and Saturday morning, the outdoor market stalls were set up at the end of our block, in the shadow of the Eiffel tower.
I have since discovered that I am allergic to wheat, so spreading the honey goat cheese on rice crackers has become my favorite little snack. But this little crostini type appetizer would be excellent with baguette slices or chunks of crusty bread.
