Shared Strawberry Crostinis

Posted on: Saturday, March 2, 2013

March 2nd celebrates the birthday of the creative, imaginative genius, Dr. Seuss. In reference to one of our favorite Dr. Seuss stories, The Cat in the Hat, we whip up an appetizer inspired by the fun-loving, mischievous anthropomorphic, kitty. With the image of his red and white striped top hat in mind, our striped crostini add a whimsical touch to any birthday gathering.
Strawberry and Goat Cheese Crostini with Balsamic Drizzle

1 French baguette, sliced into 1/4-inch biases
8 oz. softened goat cheese
salt and pepper throughout 

Balsamic syrup for drizzling
1 c strawberries, hulled and sliced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush the sliced bread with EVOO, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toasting the oven for 8-10 minutes or so, until golden brown.

Remove the toast from the oven and generously spread each slice with the goat cheese. Top with a drizzle of balsamic syrup, salt and pepper. Arrange 3 sliced strawberries on top and serve. Makes 20-22 crostini.

“It is fun to have fun
But you have to know how.”
-Dr. Seuss, our birthday buddy
