Crostini with Balsamic Strawberries and Ricotta

Written by admin


French Baguette: 1, sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds
Olive Oil: for brushing
Ricotta Cheese: 1 cup, full-fat for smoothness
Fresh Strawberries: 1 cup, hulled and sliced
Balsamic Glaze: 2 tablespoons
Fresh Basil: a few leaves, chopped or torn for garnish
Salt and Pepper: to taste


Prepare the Crostini:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
Brush both sides of each baguette slice lightly with olive oil and arrange on a baking sheet.
Toast in the oven for about 5 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove and let cool slightly.

Assemble the Toppings:

Spread a generous amount of ricotta cheese on each cooled crostini.
Top with sliced strawberries, arranging them neatly.

Drizzle and Garnish:

Drizzle each crostini with balsamic glaze.
Sprinkle with chopped basil, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper to enhance the flavors.


Arrange the crostini on a serving platter and serve immediately, ideally while the bread is still crisp.
