Perfect party food alert!! This is not a drill, you guys. I really have found one of the best party appetizers ever. I discovered this delicious little gem when I went to a birthday party at our office manager, Jacki’s house a few weeks ago.
Her friend Mallory had brought the most delectable looking little crostinis topped with roasted grapes and rosemary garnish. I’ve certainly never had roasted grapes before, so I didn’t know what to expect.
But they were so good that I literally stood next to the table for the next 45 minutes and ate more than my fair share of them. I made a few small tweaks to Mallory’s recipe, and I think it’s a winner!
3 cups washed and halved grapes
2-3 sprigs of rosemary
6-8 oz. of honey goat cheese (or just mix in some honey to taste with regular goat cheese if you can’t find honey flavored)
1 large baguette
Begin by taking your washed and halved grapes and putting them in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil on top. Finely chop your rosemary, add it to the grapes and olive oil, and mix together.
Mallory used a combination of goat cheese and cream cheese for her creamy base, but I thought that honey goat cheese would be delicious as well and add another layer of flavor to the bite. Try it both ways!
This would be great for a holiday party appetizer, and I seriously can’t wait to have people over so I can make this (although mostly for myself to eat of course). Think you’ll give it a try at your next party? xo. Laura
