Nothing makes me feel more gourmet than throwing a dinner party. I love planning the menu, setting up the decor, and letting the wine flow with my friends. That said, I don’t want to spend all of my time in the kitchen while I’m hosting.
That’s where this recipe comes in. This crostini is a snap to make in advance. It’s elegant. It’s delicious. It is impressive AF. Straight up. No joke. Your friends won’t be able to stop talking about this appetizer and will demand that you bring it to the next game night.
This recipe is so spectacular because it utilizes top quality ingredients, like crostini rounds from a local bakery and raw honey. I’m a firm believer in using local, organic, raw honey. Not only does it allow me to support local business - something I’m passionate about - but it’s loaded with nutrients. Raw honey promotes good digestive health and it contains high levels of antioxidants. When you purchase raw honey, you’ll likely notice that it contains beeswax and pollen. Don’t let that deter you from using it. That just means that it has been minimally processed, making it even better for you!
Spread a layer of goat cheese on one side of the crostini. Sprinkle several crumbles of Gorgonzola cheese on top of the goat cheese. Drizzle the raw honey on top of the cheese and pop into a preheated 350 degree oven for 3-5 minutes.
While the crostini are in the oven, I chiffonade several fresh sage leaves to sprinkle over top. Sage can have an overpowering flavor if you use too much, so use it sparingly.
Make the dish look extra fancy by drizzling honey on the serving dish. Once they’re good to go, put the crostinis out on the counter and watch your friends drool over them!
