Are you looking for a quick easy appetizer that is sure to please all of your guests? The answer, my friends, is this recipe for Goat Cheese Bruschetta.
I am not kidding, this is the absolute best finger food you will find at any party. It is also, my favorite! And when I say it is my favorite, I mean that I have literally made this at home on a Saturday afternoon and am 100% guilty of eating an entire loaf of French bread doing it. What can I say, my husband is not a big fan of tomatoes which makes these little crunchy pieces of goat cheese goodness fair game for this girl!
And no, I am not ashamed.
….Maybe a little ashamed…
Either way, I end up a happy fat girl because I will tell you what, these are absolutely irresistible. Goat Cheese Bruschetta is great for parties, perfect for potlucks and any other social gathering you might have because this little bruschetta is always a big hit. Simply toast up some french bread or maybe even some sourdough in the oven and then top with goat cheese, basil, tomatoes and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. That’s it!!!
No, I am not kidding you… that’s IT!!
The hardest part is sharing with others. Or maybe that’s just me ….
Now one thing to note, I have included instructions on how to make your own balsamic glaze at home but if you already have a favorite store bought version, that’s ok too. I won’t tell.
Now, Go… Go make Goat Cheese Bruschetta!! What? You have no special occasion to make this for? Forget needing a reason, treat yourself and go throw yourself your own ‘Special Occasion’… trust me, you will thank me for this later.
Happiness and Blessings!
