Brie and Grape Crostini

Brie and Grape Tartines

Crostini are a great appetizer to serve when guests stop by. It’s hard to go wrong with cheesy toasts — you can whip them up quickly and they always taste great. So, this week, we’re finishing our month of party snacks with a brie and grape crostini recipe from Sam Linsell of Drizzle Dip. With only a handful of ingredients, these toasts are easy as they are delicious. Here’s how to make them…

These sweet and savory toasts are great to serve at a brunch or on a cheese board. The red grapes add a delicious juiciness to the mix, while the honey and walnuts bring sweetness and crunch to the party. Enjoy!

Brie and Grape Tartines

You’ll need:

1 medium loaf of crusty Italian bread
Butter
Red grapes
Brie, sliced
Honey for drizzling
Chopped walnuts (optional)

Cut loaf into long 3/4-inch slices on an angle. Brush both sides with melted butter and toast in a toaster oven or oven broiler for a few minutes until slightly crispy.

Layer slices of brie generously on the toast, then add a few sliced red grapes. Toast again until the cheese starts to bubble. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. Serve immediately.

  2. Made this last night and it was yummy….I drizzled mine with truffle honey which made my mouth very happy. Thank you!

    This looks DELICIOUS- I’ve always been a cheese person, but some months ago I had a diner with just bread and cheese, and I felt sick all night.
    From that moment, I stopped buying cheese without realizing that I wouldn’t buy any cheese for months.
    Now my body rejects eating cheese everyday. But Brie is fine.
    I will be doing this recipe this summer!

  4. My mouth is watering just looking at those photos!! loved this post

    This looks amazing! I think it may be the most intriguing and mouth-watering recipe I’ve seen yet. Can’t wait to make it!

    This looks delicious! I love to eat grapes with cheese (and walnuts).
    My grandmother used to say ‘ Uvas y queso saben a beso’ which means ‘ Grapes and cheese taste like a kiss’ :)

  7. Olivia says...

    This looks AWESOME. Also delicious with halloumi and a splash of balsamic! And you can cook down the grapes for maximum flavor ;)

  8. This looks really amazing and easy to prepare. I love anything with cheese, fruit, and honey! I would love to have this right now with a glass of wine, however I need to pick the kiddos up from school soon, so I’ll have to wait until after they go to bed. These pictures are beautiful too.

    A great variation on this is to use goat cheese or ricotta instead of brie, and to roast the grapes (off the stem, on a roasting pan drizzled in olive oil, with a few sprigs of thyme or rosemary) and drizzle with a little balsamic. It is amazing!

      You got it! I mix soft goats cheese, a bit of cream cheese and honey and top with roasted grapes that sat for a while (sliced) in olive oil and Rosemary. The juice is amazing, I usually keep it aside to toss through cous cous for a salad.

  10. This looks incredible!! My favorite appetizer in the summer is honey goat cheese with strawberries on a crostini! So fresh and delicious!! I would love adding this in as a mix!

    Also for anyone interested, I just posted an incredible low cal, no added sugar recipe for Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins on my blog. They’re to die for!!

  12. Alice Quin says...

    Delicious!!!!

  13. That would be a great lunch .. with iced tea ..sitting out on the patio :)

    ( yes , I just moved to Florida and I am reveling in the warm sunshine)

      oooh, enjoy that warm weather!!

    This looks so yummy-almost like dessert! Brie is sooo good.

  15. Here’s a no-brainer way to serve brie after a meal, especially if you grilled (thanks to French neighbors!). You take a brie, the kind that’s a whole round and comes in a little wooden container. You remove the inner plastic/paper wrapper. You put the brie back in and set it on a corner of the warm grill by the charcoals but not too close (we did and ended up with only half a brie). You take off the lid, and serve with bread. Folks can scoop out melted cheese with a knife or a spoon and spread it on the bread. DELISH

  16. I was looking for an easy/impressive treat to make for my friends and I when we’re traveling in Paris next week! Perfect timing, this is going to be AMAZING to fix in our little AirBnB before we head out in the evenings…. especially with a glass of wine (and the brie we’ll be able to get our hands on)! Thanks for sharing, as always!
