The holidays are right around the corner and today I am sharing my “go to” appetizer. This easy Brie, Apple, and Honey Crostini is SO easy and party goers always ooh and ahh over it. I always love watching my friends and family take a bite for the first time. It is one of those recipes where people close their eyes and say: wow, yum, mmmm, so good, amazing, and some even make weird noises, which is kind of awkward at a party, but this crostini is THAT good! And they love it even more when they find out how easy it is to make!

A few weeks ago, I went to Cincinnati for a blogging event with Kroger. We have been working with Kroger this year so it was fun to see the headquarters, meet with the Kroger team, and spend time with the other Kroger bloggers.

Kroger asked every blogger to prepare a recipe for a holiday meal. We all shopped, cooked, and ate together and it was so much fun. We used the new ClickList program to do our grocery shopping. We ordered our groceries online and then picked them up at the Kroger store.

For the holiday meal, I made my favorite Brie, Apple, and Honey Crostini. I knew it would be a hit with the group!

So let’s talk about how easy this recipe is. I told you easy and I mean EASY. The appetizer starts with a baguette, but I don’t even have to slice it because I always buy the perfectly sliced baguette at Kroger (Smith’s in Utah). Next, I spread apple butter on the bread slices. I don’t make the apple butter, I totally cheat and use Private Selection Apple Butter. It is perfectly spiced and tastes amazing.

On top of the apple butter, I place slices of creamy Murray’s Cheese Brie. I place the crostini in the oven until the brie gets all melty and gooey. Remove from the oven and top with candied pecans and a drizzle of honey. At home, I use my homemade candied pecans because I always have them on hand, but at the event I used Private Selections candied pecans and they are really tasty! Kroger really does have everything!

At the event, I also tried Private Selection’s Vanilla and Nutmeg Infused Honey and oh my goodness! It was the perfect ending to my crostini. If you can’t find it, any honey will do, but that honey is amazing!

The Brie, Apple, and Honey was the perfect start to our holiday feast! Everyone loved it. And let me tell you, when a group of bloggers makes a holiday meal, you leave very full and very happy. I was amazed by all of the creative and delicious dishes. I wish we could make dinner together every night!

This easy Brie, Apple, and Honey Crostini is the perfect holiday appetizer. It takes about 15 minutes to make and your guests will be raving about it until the next holiday season. Add it to your holiday menu NOW!

    This recipe is as easy as promised and twice as delicious. This is my new go-to appetizer! I roughly chopped some Private Selection praline coated pecans and they were perfect. Enjoy!

    I had already decided to make this appie when i found out my brother in law was making a prosciutto wrapped date. So two sweet appies was not what people wanted. So in order to cut the sweetness of this one i swapped out the honey for balsamic vinegar reduction. It was amazing to add the tartness to this dish. It was a huge hit all round! Try it you will love it!

    I made this last night for a party and it was a huge hit! It was so easy to throw together at the last minute.  I made the candied pecans earlier in the week, I was lucky to have some left for this appetizer because I could not stop snacking on them.  Thanks for the great recipes! 

  4. This looks delicious!! I want to make this and take to my friends house. Can this be made ahead of time?
    If so, what would I need to do?
