Grape Crostini is a fun dish to make under 30 minutes. The sweetness of the grape combined with the spice of Thyme make this a great recipe
Let us face it. The writing is on the sky!
Summer is almost over……
It is a painful fact, yet, we must all face it.
First up: California red seedless grapes.
In the Grape Crostini, I went with Ricotta cheese instead of the traditional goat cheese. Since Ricotta is mostly flavorless, it is the right taste choice to meld with Grapes.
If you prefer goat cheese, try this strawberry crostini recipe by Simple and Savory.
Grape Crostini is so easy to make and takes less than 30 minutes. It is a perfect lunch or brunch.
Savor the Grape and the last days of summer.
For the bread, instead of the traditional baguette, I went with a 5-grain Italian bread.
What end-of-summer signs do you not like seeing?
I have an awesome collection of brunch recipes that everyone will love.
