If you are doing some entertaining over the next month or so, here is a quick and easy appetizer for you. These Cranberry Grape Goat Cheese Crostini are perfect for you if need something simple and elegant.
I am having a wonderful time finding seasonal items to buy at the grocery stores. And they are all super cheap to buy, like grapes and cranberries! I didn’t know if these flavors would go well together but they do! And taste out of this world. What’s even better is that this entire appetizer only cost me about $4 and can make between 24 crostini.
Goat cheese has a very particular flavor so if you have never had it and are weary to try it I recommend starting with this kind first. This goat cheese comes with a layer of sweetened cranberries on the outside which helps make it sweet and creamy.
I topped this appetizer off with grapes and a drizzle of honey on each and add the bread and you have a winning combination.
You can definitely make these ahead of time or make this a self serve type appetizer. Either way it will be a fabulous addition to any party table! Enjoy!
