Get ready for summer with this festive appetizer! Sweet strawberries, tart balsamic, flavorful basil, and tangy goat cheese, all on a comforting baguette.
And seriously, this strawberry and goat cheese bruschetta was so easy to throw together, and hits all the right marks: sweet strawberries, tart balsamic, flavorful basil, and tangy goat cheese, all on a comforting baguette.
It’d make the perfect low-hassle appetizer at a house party, and you know what? We’re long overdue for hosting one. Not gonna lie, I may just organize the whole party just so I have a good excuse to make this bruschetta again.
1 baguette sliced
2 tsp olive oil or more to taste
1 pinch salt to taste
1 pinch pepper to taste
1/2 cup strawberries stems cut off and sliced thin
1/2 cup goat cheese crumbles or spread
1 tbsp basil chopped
2 tbsp balsamic glaze
- Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Step 2
Place sliced baguette pieces on the parchment paper, about 1 inch apart, and brush the tops with olive oil. If desired, lightly season with salt and pepper.
- Step 3
Bake bread for 5 minutes or until edges look golden brown. Be careful not to toast the bread too much.
- Step 4
While bread is still warm, sprinkle (or spread) goat cheese on the sliced baguette. Arrange sliced strawberries on top, then sprinkle with basil. Finish by drizzling balsamic glaze on top.
