time on your hands is rare when you have a full house. 2gether we eat is about
bringing your tribe together to enjoy a meal, even if it means preparing that
meal with one free hand and someone pulling at your leg. Not only do I hope to offer delicious, easy
to prepare recipes, but I’ll also show you how getting your kids involved in
the process can make the meal that much more rewarding for you and those eating
I always love switching up toppings on a Crostini and these ingredients are for the most part, stuff I have around the house or have been left over from another recipe.
Not only is this recipe a crowd pleaser, it’s also appealing to the kiddos too. If you’ve got time to spare, have the kiddo’s help by spreading the cheese before putting the crostini into the toaster oven.
This fancy appetizer only takes about 10-15 minutes from start to finish.
1 French baguette
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 ripe pear, cored and thinly sliced lengthwise
2-3 tbs honey
1 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
Salt to taste
Lately I’ve been asking the bakery at the grocery store to slice my bread. Most bakers will slice bread for you, which is great because it saves you a lot of time in the kitchen. If you don’t have the option to have the baguette cut for you, cut it yourself into ¼ inch slices.
Place sliced baguette pieces into the toaster oven and toast for about 3 minutes. You want the bread to look slightly toasted but not brown or to crunchy.
Once out of the toaster, smear the ricotta cheese on the slices and top with 2 pieces of pear as well as ¼ teaspoon of honey drizzled on top and 5 to 6 chopped walnuts. If the walnuts are not salted, add a pinch of salt to each one.
The flavor combination of this crostini delivers something special for those sweet and savory taste buds. Enjoy!
