Let’s talk about one of my favorite subjects:

How to make crostini and bruschetta talk! 

At the risk of being judged a bruschetta snob, I would like to reiterate the fact that crostini or bruschetta are not toast. They are grilled pieces of bread, with a charred smoky exterior and soft interior, rubbed nicely with a garlic clove, brushed with olive oil and then topped with some goodies of your choice.

I’m sure we can finally all agree on that right ? Forever and ever, Amen !

I used my cast iron griddle to quickly charr the crostini, then I whipped up some amazing creamy goat cheese with olive oil and herbs to use as a topping.

You could use it as a dip If you prefer, a spread for open faced tomato sandwiches, as centerpiece on an Antipasto platter or serve with your favorite tomato soup.

You will need a small food processor to make this magic happen. That little machine is Everything! If I could only hold on to one little kitchen gadget, my mini food processor would be it! (<–amazon links)

    I would really like to dive into that bowl of herbed goat cheese with a spoon! Plus, the heavenly grilled bread, my favorite. These are just so perfect for spring and summertime entertaining. (And, oh my gosh, mini goats are too cute!)
