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 little things, like her seasonal fruits and berries.

How this recipe came to be:

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.

Don’t like goat cheese?

Try it with a drizzle of honey and you may change your mind.

The touch of sweetness the honey lends to the earthy creamy goat cheese is absolutely delicious.

Using honey gives these goat cheese appetizers a sweet little kick of unexpected flavor that melds extremely well with the pungency of the goat cheese.

Substitution for goat cheese?

I’d suggest a softened cream cheese or even a Boursin cheese.

*Special note – If using the Boursin cheese recipe (linked above), you may want to adjust the amount of fresh herbs used in that recipe to compliment this blueberry basil bruschetta recipe. The choice is yours, of course.

Why this recipe works:

They’re a super-fast appetizer to make, and they’re 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, haha), and before I knew it, I was downing the second one with hardly a breath in between.

Can these appetizers be made in advance?

Yes, but I wouldn’t make them longer than 4 hours before you plan to serve them so the baguettes stay crispy.

Also, do NOT top the appetizers with basil until right before you’re ready to serve them so the basil won’t oxidize and turn brown.

Once made, keep the goat cheese topped bruschetta in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, allow the goat cheese and blueberry appetizers to come to room temperature for 15 minutes for maximum flavor, and top with fresh basil.

What is chiffonade and how to do it?

How to make blueberry basil bruschetta:

  • 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.
