I love easy appetizers like this that come together quickly, look gorgeous, and taste amazing. These are great to make in advance and serve guests as they arrive. They can enjoy with a glass of sparkling wine or a cocktail, while you finish things up in the kitchen.
You can get creative with the cheese, too. I love a soft and tangy goat cheese or any kind of soft cheese like a savory herbed spread or even cream cheese.
Trust me, the combo of sweet, savory and spicy is perfection.
cranberry sauce bread or these cranberry sauce margaritas!
Cranberry Sauce Crostini with Garlic & Herbed Goat Cheese
4-6oz goat cheese (or other soft cheese like cream cheese, Boursin, etc.)
1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce (here's my favorite homemade cranberry sauce recipe!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice baguette on a bias and into about 12 half-inch thick slices. Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and bake 10 minutes, then flip to other side and bake an additional 10 minutes until toasted.
Rub each toast with garlic, then spread with cheese.
Top with a generous spoonful of cranberry sauce and garnish with mint. Serve immediately.
