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.

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.

  1. Yum! I am so ready for grape season. I just planted some muscadines in our yard and I can’t wait to jam!

  2. I absolutely adore roasted grapes, and am glad that summer hasn’t even begun yet so that I can have these on the menu all season long! Perfect for starters, but I know I’d make them into a meal.

  3. Oh I do miss summer! We could never consider swimming in the sea without a wet suit, where I live – far too cold! There are no trees for the leaves to fall off of and we don’t get seasonal grapes – just the mass produced supermarket variety. I’d love to try your California grapes as they sound AMAZING! Gorgeous recipe too – love these flavours!

  4. This post inspired me to play with grapes. I was at my friends place making a pizza in his outdoor oven. He is growing his own grapes and I added several to a pizza with random ingredients on it and challenged his son to eat it. The son did, but then we all took a slice. It wasn’t too shabby. But I think I will stick to using grapes in applications like this one. Great look crostini.

  5. Oooh, grapes are so sweet right now! I can’t wait to try this out on a gluten free baguette! I just picked up a loaf from Against All Grain, so I am so making this recipe!
