Roasted Grape Crostini is an easy, elegant appetizer that’s perfect for the holiday season. Oven-roasted balsamic-infused grapes, complement creamy ricotta and crusty bread so deliciously and it’s especially lovely served with wine.
Fresh sprigs of thyme or rosemary, sesame seeds and cracked pepper to top (optional)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a small bowl, whisk vinegar and olive oil together. Add grapes and toss to coat. Add grapes to a small baking sheet that is lined with foil.
Bake for 20 minutes. While cooking, slice baguette into ⅓ inch slices (should make about 22 rounds, depending the size and amount bought). Lay the bread slices on a large baking sheet and spray tops with cooking spray.
Place bread slices on other rack in oven to toast at the same time as grapes, for the last 10 mins.
Remove grapes and bread from oven after 10 minutes and when baguette slices are lightly toasted and grapes are just starting to wrinkle and burst.
Spread about 1 tablespoon ricotta onto crostini and add several grape halves to each crostini. Sprinkle fresh cracked pepper and sesame seeds over crostini and garnish with thyme or rosemary. Enjoy!
