Tastey Tuesday Recipe Exchange--Week 2!!
Here we are at Week 2....time for another round of appetizer recipes. So, come on, dig into those recipe boxes! Or, maybe you don't even have to do that! If you're like me, it seems like I make the same appetizers so many times that I don't even need a recipe...I can shop for the ingredients and make it completely from memory. So, feel free to share a recipe that you have stored in your mental recipe box. It doesn't need to be complex or chalk full of impressive techniques. If you've made it a million times....it's gotta be scrumptious.
That's what this recipe is....something I've made a million times. It's easy enough for anyone to throw together yet sophisticated enough to serve to cousin Buffy and her sugar daddy Harry....
Goat Cheese, Walnut, Honey & Rosemary Toasts
1 French-bread baguette (8 oz)
8 ounces soft fresh goat cheese
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut 1/4-inch diagonal slices from baguette (approx 18). Spread goat cheese on each slice. Arrange in single layer on rimmed baking sheet. Bake until edges are slightly golden and cheese softens, about 10 minutes. Set aside on sheet. Heat honey in small saucepan over medium heat until warm, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle toasts with walnuts, then rosemary. Drizzle with honey and serve.
Just imagine...one of these little bites, a lovely glass of lush Chardonnay, Bing Crosby singing White Christmas and you in your amazing black velvet bustier and red stihlettos...
Oh how merry. Oh how tastey.
