Bruschetta Appetizer with Blueberries and Basil

From the first time I ever tried goat cheese, I knew I’d never be the same. With its creamy texture and mildly pungent taste, goat cheese is the perfect accompaniment for some of Mother Nature’s sweetest things like her seasonal fruits and berries.

Bruschetta Appetizer with Blueberry and Basil

Welcome readers to what I’ve self-proclaimed for my blog as “Berry Week.” I have three very special berry recipes that I’m over-the-moon excited to be sharing with you this week. They range from an appetizer (this one for Blueberry Basil Bruschetta) to a Strawberry Sriracha BBQ sauce (for all of your backyard grilling needs), to some fun and patriotic Red, White and Blue Dessert Nachos that will be wonderful to serve on Memorial Day as well as the 4th of July.

 

10 minute Appetizer with Goat Cheese and Blueberries

First up, Blueberry Basil Bruschetta. They’re super fast to make and super hard to resist. Trust me when I tell you this. During my photography session, I decided to take one bite (for artistic purposes only, of course), and before I knew it, I was downing the second one with hardly a breath in between.

Slice a baguette diagonally, into approximately ½” thickness. Toast the sliced baguettes in a dry skillet until browned. Spread goat cheese evenly onto the toasted baguette slices.

How to make blueberry basil bruschetta

Season the goat cheese with black pepper. Top the goat cheese with fresh blueberries, fresh basil, a liberal drizzle of honey and a light sprinkling of salt. Serve.

Fast and Easy Blueberry Bruschetta Appetizer

Delicious and easy blueberry and goat cheese appetizer.

Blueberry, goat cheese, and basil bruschetta appetizer.

I saved what was left of the Blueberry Basil Bruschetta on the plate for my husband to eat with dinner, and he literally went on and on about how much he loved them! I honestly think we could have made an entire meal out of them and been perfectly happy. LOL. Maybe another time 😉

This post reminds me of a fruit juice glass I painted for a customer a while back. As you can see, it’s fun and whimsical, and each of those little blueberries is wearing a big, bright smile (along with the strawberries, pineapples, lemon and orange). It’s bright, colorful and makes me smile! I hope it makes you smile too 🙂
