Crostini with Pear, Fig and Bacon Chutney, Brie and Pecans are a delicious, simple and elegant hors d’oeuvre perfect for any special event.
Crostini are a perfect vessel for making yummy and creative small bites. These crispy little breads can stand up to just about any topping.
Some other topping ideas for crostini:
- Cream cheese, smoked salmon, capers and pickled red onion
- Caprese: tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, balsamic vinegar
- Hummus, roasted red peppers, kalamata olive
- Chicken salad, dried cranberries and toasted almonds
- Chevre, fig and honey with fresh herbs
- Olive Crostini with Fresh Mozzarella
Not only are they yummy but are super easy to make!
How to make Crostini with Pear, Fig and Bacon:
- Just slice up some baguette, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and seasoning (I use Trader Joe’s garlic salt grinder but a little salt and pepper will do).
- Toast the bread slices in the oven at 350 degrees F until light golden and crisped.
- Then top the breads with slices of brie and place in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese (about 4 minutes).
- Then top with some of the Pear, Fig and Bacon Chutney and a few toasted pecan pieces, Garnish with fresh herbs and voila!
