Ingredients
  

  • 1 Baguette
  • 1 Can Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
  • 8 oz Wheel of Brie
  • 1-2 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
  • 2 Cups Cherry Tomatos
  • 4 oz Goat Cheese
  • 1 Jar Pesto
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Basil for garnish
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt for seasoning
  • Pepper for seasoning

Instructions
 

To Make Crostini:

  • Preheat Oven to 425. Line Baking Sheet with Foil.
  • Slice Baguette on a diagonal into 1/2 inch slices.
  • Brush both sides of each slice with Olive Oil and place on Baking Sheet.
  • Bake in the oven until toasted. About 5 minutes per side.

To Make Tomatos:

  • Slice Cherry Tomatoes in half and toss with 1 Tbsp Olive Oil and Salt and Pepper (to taste).
  • Spread Tomatoes on Baking Sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes or until tomatoes are brown and soft.
  • Take Tomatoes out of the oven and let cool while you assemble the Brie Crostini.

To Assemble Brie Crostini:

  • Slice Brie Cheese and place on top of toasted Baguette Slices. (I keep the rind on the cheese).
  • Spoon some of the Cranberry Sauce on top of the Cheese.
  • Garnish with a piece of Rosemary. Sprinkle Sea Salt on top.

To Assemble Roasted Tomato Crostini

  • Spread some Goat Cheese on top of toasted Baguette Slices.
  • Spoon some Pesto on top of the Cheese.
  • Place a few Roasted Tomatoes on top of the Pesto.
  • Sprinkle chopped Basil on top of Tomatoes.

Notes

  • I use all canned ingredients but you can also make your own cranberry sauce and pesto.
  • Adding crispy prosciutto to the Brie Crostini would be a nice addition.
  • Drizzling Balsamic Glaze on the Roasted Tomato Crostini is also an option.
