Fresh Strawberry Goat Cheese Crostini with balsamic reduction is the perfect summer appetizer for any party!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Goat Cheese (4 oz) (softened)
1/2 Cup Sliced Strawberries
Fresh Basil (Chiffonade)
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Slice your baguette bread & place them on a baking sheet lined with foil. Then brush each side with olive oil & sprinkle the tops with salt & pepper.
Bake the baguette for 15-20 minutes until golden, flipping the baguette slices halfway through to ensure both sides cook evenly.
Once golden & slightly cooled, spread softened goat cheese on each baguette, & top with sliced strawberries & fresh basil.
And finally, drizzle balsamic on top & enjoy!
*1. If you prefer thickened balsamic (as pictured) simply pour the balsamic in a pan & bring it to a simmer at medium heat, then reduce the heat to low & let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened. I reduce between 1/4 & 1/3 cup, but it depends on how much balsamic reduction you desire.
