Oh, I love a good summer appetizer. We recently served this Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta recipe at a party, on the big board. You can start with a little toasted crostini and then add your favorite summer toppings. Goat Cheese Bruschetta toppings that we love are when strawberries and summer corn are in season.

*The balsamic glaze really makes this recipe. Here you can buy a pack of 2 of this Delallo Modenacrem Balsamic Glaze 8.5 Oz (Pack of 2). We always keep this stocked in our pantry, and eat it sparingly, because it’s that good! [affiliate link]

How do you make Goat Cheese Bruschetta?

  1. To prepare the bread, preheat oven to BROIL. Lay the slices of bread on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.
  2. Broil each side for about 30 seconds until toasted and brown. (Don’t walk away, it’s easy to over-toast the bread:)
  3. Combine cheeses in a small bowl and mix well.
  4. Spread the toasted baguette slices with cheese mixture and top with strawberries, pressing the strawberry pieces into the cheese.
  5. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and garnish with a fresh mint leaf. Serve on a platter or a BIG BOARD.

Tips and substitutions:

  • You can use fresh summer produce on top like berries, fresh corn, sliced cucumber, even little ripe, sweet cherry tomatoes.
  • Swap out the goat cheese for blue cheese, Boursin cheese, or any soft, spreadable cheese.
  • You can use ALL goat cheese and skip the cream cheese, but we love the creamy combo.
  • Optional to not add the balsamic drizzle, but we feel it really adds to the flavor.
  • Don’t have mint? Use fresh basil – pairs very well with the above toppings.
  • Serve on the BIG BOARD – great for any party.
  • The warmer the bread out of the oven, the more spreadable the cheese is.
