Roasted Grape, Blue Cheese, & Honey Crostini

We hope you all had a joyous Christmas weekend. We had a wonderful holiday with our new little pea and my family. We hosted Christmas dinner last night and it was one big party. We had five kids under the age of five at the table, there was never a dull moment:) My family will be in town all week. I am glad the fun doesn’t have to end just yet. If you are still entertaining or gearing up for a New Years party and need an easy appetizer, try this Roasted Grape, Blue Cheese, & Honey Crostini.

This crostini recipe is super easy, which makes it perfect for parities and entertaining. You only need five ingredients-olive oil, grapes, French baguette, blue cheese, and honey. Roasting the grapes doesn’t take long and it brings out a nice sweet flavor. The savory, salty cheese goes really well with the sweet grapes and honey. This stunning appetizer is sure to be a hit at any party.

Roasted Grape, Blue Cheese, & Honey Crostini

Yield: 20-24 crostini

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

Crostini with roasted grapes, blue cheese, and a touch of sweet honey. This easy appetizer is perfect for parities.

Ingredients:

Red grapes, about 1 pound, removed from the stems
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 French baguette, thinly sliced and toasted
Blue cheese, about 4-6 ounces
Honey, for drizzling

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place grapes on a large baking sheet. Drizzle grapes with olive oil and gently toss. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until grapes are soft and slightly shriveled. Let the grapes cool to room temperature.

2. Place 3 grapes on top of a baguette slice. Top with blue cheese and a drizzle of honey. Serve.

Note-to toast baguette slices-preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place baguette slices on a large baking sheet and toast until edges are slightly golden and bread begins to toast, about 5 minutes.

    You’re the second blog in the last couple days that I’ve seen roasted grapes on, and before that, another bloggie friend of mine makes them with brie. I NEED to try this because they look so good.

    Oh girl, these look gorgeous. I make a similar crostini with brie but think it’s time to switch things up and try it with blue cheese!

    These look really good! I would love them with blue cheese, but I would probably try them with brie as well, as someone else suggested, as blue cheese is a little too strong for my husband.

      Brie would work as well!

    What is it about blue cheese that marries so well with honey? I think a blue cheese/honey salad dressing would work well too. And, yum on the roasted grapes.

    Do you think this would work with goat cheese instead of blue?

    Have you tried melting the bleu cheese onto the bread and then putting the grapes on top of the melted cheese? It seems the the cheese and grapes would fall off easily and I am all about preventing messes :).

    I made something similar, with blue cheese, raspberries, and actual honeycomb on a crostini! So good.

    Looks perfect for an Academy Award viewing party I am going to. The added cheese and honey takes to really over the top. We need to bring apps and this looks like just the ticket. Pun totally intended. I have made a roasted grape chicken before and never in my wildest dreams did I think roasted grapes could have so much depth of flavor!
