Goats cheese crostini with griddled apricots, basil & honey
Tangy goats cheese, caramelised charred apricots and a sweet honey drizzle make these easy crostini delicious and sophisticated!
- 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
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!
