Goat cheese is one of my favourite ingredients to use in appetizers because it’s so versatile. And especially in the summertime the creaminess of the goat cheese goes so well with fresh berries!
How to make a simple blueberry goat cheese appetizer
Cook the blueberries: Fresh blueberries are cooked down with honey and a bit of balsamic vinegar for a divine mix of flavours.
Mix the goat cheese: Goat cheese is softened and then mixed with honey for the perfect base of this summer appetizer.
Make the crostini: Toast slices of baguette that have been drizzled with olive oil as the best vehicle for the blueberry-goat cheese appetizer. Or, use your favourite crackers to save even more time.
Blueberry Goat Cheese Crostini Appetizer
This divine Blueberry Goat Cheese Crostini is the easiest summer appetizer to make! Softened goat cheese is topped with a homemade blueberry mixture and fresh thyme for the perfect savory bite.
- 1 baguette or crackers
- olive oil
- 1 cup fresh blueberries plus extra for garnish
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 200-225g softened goat cheese about 8 oz goat cheese
- 1 tbsp honey
- fresh thyme for garnish
Add blueberries, 2 tbsp honey and balsamic vinegar to a small pot. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring often, about 5-7 minutes until blueberries start to burst. Remove from the heat and let cool completely. If you want the blueberries to cool faster, put the mixture in the fridge.
Pre-heat the oven to a low broil. Slice half the baguette into about 1/2 inch slices and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and broil on low for 2-4 minutes until just crisp. Set aside.
Stir the softened goat cheese and 1 tbsp honey together. Then spread the goat cheese mixture on a plate or in a shallow bowl.
Finish the plate by spooning the cooled blueberry mixture on top of the goat cheese. Top with a few extra blueberries and fresh thyme sprigs. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve with crostini or crackers.
This appetizer is so easy to make and you can even switch up the fruit to make it more versatile.
