Grilled Mascarpone & Goat Cheese Crostini w/ Burst Tomatoes & Balsamic Glaze

Grilled Mascarpone & Goat Cheese Crostini w/ Burst Tomatoes & Balsamic Glaze

  • Yield: 8 1x

Description

An easy crostini appetizer made with grilled sourdough,  creamy mascarpone and goat cheese topped with the sweetest ever tomatoes and a balsamic glaze.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 rustic baguette, (sliced 1/4 inch thick into 1520 slices (sourdough or french bread are also fine))
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 4 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, (at room temperature)
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, (at room temperature)
  • Balsamic glaze for drizzing

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Lightly brush both sides of the sliced bread with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a bowl, toss the tomatoes with remaining oil, just enough to coat, a pinch of salt, and the garlic powder.
  2. Grill the bread 1-3 minutes on each side, until crisp. Set aside. Take a large piece of aluminum foil and create a little basket. Pour the tomatoes in the foil basket and grill until tomatoes begin to burst, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Mix together the mascarpone and goat cheese until well combined. Assemble the crostini. Spread the cheese mixture on a slice of grilled bread, top with 3-4 tomatoes, and drizzle with a little balsamic glaze. Repeat until all crostini are assembled. Enjoy!
