Mascarpone and Pomegranate Crostini

 

p1

Looking for an appetizer to please the ladies at your Super Bowl party? I think I’ve come up with one they will love … The guys are going to love it too. I just had Dennis try it and he thought it was fantastic. I had some pomegranate’s in my fridge that I wanted to use as well as a carton of mascarpone. I picked up a baguette while at the market this morning and decided to make a crostini with my pomegranates and mascarpone.

I cut my baguette in diagonal slices, brushed them with a little olive oil and baked them in a 375 degree oven for 12 minutes.

I let them cool for just a bit before spreading my mascarpone/goat cheese/honey mixture on them. Once that was on the bread, I sprinkled fresh thyme leaves and pomegranates. Easy as pie.  Only I don’t think pie is this easy.

In a small bowl, I mixed together one cup of mascarpone cheese, 4 tablespoons of goat cheese and 2 tablespoons of honey with my hand mixer.

Ingredients

8 ounces mascarpone

4 tablespoons goat cheese

2 tablespoons honey

olive oil for brushing

fresh thyme leaves

pomegranate seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut baguette into slices (on the diagonal).
  3. Brush each slice with olive oil.
  4. Mix together mascarpone, goat cheese, and honey with hand mixer.
  5. Spread cheese on toasted bread.
  6. Sprinkle with thyme and pomegranate seeds.

Enjoy!

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
