Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta
This Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta is my new favorite appetizer. Slightly chewy bruschetta is topped with creamy goat cheese, peppery arugula, juicy strawberries, and earthy basil!
Servings: 12 bites
- 1/2 pint strawberries sliced
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 12 slices baguette cut 1/2 in thick
- olive oil for drizzling
- 1 (4 oz) log goat cheese softened
- 24 leaves of arugula two per slice
- Fresh basil minced
Mix together balsamic vinegar and honey together until well combined.
Place strawberry slices into the mixture and then let sit in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
Preheat broiler (mine is at 500 degrees F) for about 5 minutes.
Places slices of baguette on a rimmed baking sheet and lightly drizzle with oil.
Broil for about 60 seconds, or until the baguette pieces are lightly browned.
Let cool slightly before spreading each piece with goat cheese.
Top each baguette with 2 leaves of arugula.
Evenly spoon the strawberries over the arugula.
Top with freshly minced basil.
* This was about 1/2 a baguette for us.
This recipe can easily be doubled!
