Ingredients

  • 1/2 baguette (or thereabouts)
  • 3-4 tbsp melted butter or oil
  • 4 apricots
  • 50 g soft goats cheese
  • 1 tbsp shredded basil leaves
  • 2-3 tbsp runny honey

Instructions

  • Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high flame.
  • Slice the baguette into 8 1cm-thick slices. Brush with melted butter on both sides. 
  • Cook the sliced baguette in the hot griddle pan for 1-2 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Halve the apricots and remove the stones. Place the apricot halves cut side down in the hot griddle pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until lightly charred. Turn over and cook the other side for a further 1-2 minutes. Remove from the pan and cut each half into two pieces. Allow to cool.
  • Spread about 1 tsp of goats cheese onto each piece of baguette. Top with one or two pieces of apricot and arrange the crostini on a serving plate. 
  • Sprinkle the shredded basil leaves over the crostini and then drizzle with honey. Serve, eat and enjoy!
