Blackberry Goat Cheese Crostini

Blackberry Goat Cheese Crostini

My son is a big fan of goat cheese and I just happened to have a bowl of fresh blackberries on the counter so I instantly wanted to make this recipe for blackberry goat cheese crostini when I saw it on Life as a Strawberry. This appetizer is really easy to throw together and the combination of flavors and textures is really wonderful – I especially loved the lime zest on there. This crostini was a big hit with my entire family and we all thought it was pretty too.

How to Make Blackberry Goat Cheese Crostini

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

To assemble, slather a bit of whipped goat cheese on each crostini then top with 1 or 2 blackberries. Drizzle with a bit of warmed honey, to taste. Top with a little basil and lime zest. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
