Goat Cheese Crostini with Honey, Pecans and Thyme
Sweet notes from the honey meld perfectly with the smooth and creamy goat cheese which is then topped with fresh thyme – all complimented by the crunch from the pecans. This is one appetizer everyone is sure to love!
1 French baguette, 18 inches, cut into 3/4-inch slices 2 (4 oz.) Montchevre® Natural Goat Cheese Log, at room temperature 2 tablespoons honey, plus more for drizzling 1/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted pecans 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place bread slices on a baking sheet. Bake 10 -12 minutes or until lightly toasted.
Meanwhile, mix the goat cheese and honey together until relatively smooth. It’s okay if it's a little crumbly.
Spread the goat cheese mixture on the toasted bread (while it's still warm). Top with chopped pecans, fresh thyme leaves and a pinch of sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper, if desired.
Before serving, drizzle each crostini with honey. Keep leftovers covered tightly in the refrigerator for a couple days.
