Basalmic goat cheese crostini

Here was an experiment that began with a delicious baguette and left over goat cheese. This turned out nicely and we paired it with some wine. For this situation I chose to make it like a French bread pizza, however slicing it as Crostini would be ideal and what I would do next time.

You will need:

  • Fresh baguette
  • 8 oz goat cheese
  • Handful of spinach
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes 
  • 2 onions
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup mozzarella
  • Basalmic glaze (you can make it or buy it)* recipe below

Step one:

Cut baguette in half and place on a baking pan. Preheat oven to 350. 

Step two:

Heat olive oil on medium high heat. Cook onions for at least five minutes. Add tomatoes and cook down until onions are caramelized.

Step three: 

Sprinkle mozzarella on bread. Add onions and tomatoes. Add goat cheese and fresh cracked pepper. Place in oven and cook for 8 -10 minutes.

Step four:

While bread is cooking in the oven, slice spinach and gently sauté over medium heat using the same pan you used for the onions. Cook until tender and set aside.
Step five:
Sprinkle spinach on top of the bread and drizzle with glaze. Enjoy!

To make basalmic glaze:

Bring 2 cups basalmic vinegar and 1/2 cup brown sugar to a boil and reduce heat for twenty minutes.
