Ingredients

FOR THE HONEY WHIPPED GOAT CHEESE:

  • 4 ounces goat cheese log
  • 2 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
  • tablespoons honey

FOR THE STRAWBERRY BRUSCHETTA:

  • 1 pound fresh strawberries hulled and halved (quartered if large)
  • 6-8 basil leaves sliced thin plus a few small baby leaves for garnish
  • 12 ounces whole grain baguette sliced
  • olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

Instructions

  • In a food processor fitted with blade attachment, add in the goat cheese, cream cheese and honey. Blend until smooth. Transfer goat cheese mixture to a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium/medium-low.
  • Place the strawberries into a bowl along with the sliced basil, toss to combine.
  • Slice the loaf of bread into 1/2 inch thick slices. Brush both sides with olive oil and place on the grates of your preheated grill. Grill for a few minutes each side until golden and toasted.
  • Allow the bread to cool a bit before spreading each piece with goat cheese. Top with strawberries and drizzle with the balsamic syrup. Top with a few baby basil leaves for garnish.
