Apple Goat Cheese Crostini Appetizer

Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time5 mins
Total Time20 mins
Servings: 4


  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 1 lemon zested and juiced
  • 1 Granny Smith apple thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp fresh thyme plus some for garnishing
  • 1/2 tsp ground coarse black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 baguette sliced in longer pieces (diagonally)
  • Olive oil to drizzle


  • On baking sheet, spread out bread slices. Lightly drizzle both sides with olive oil, then broil in oven for 2-3 minutes on each side—until the bread is lightly golden and crunchy.
  • In small bowl, cream together goat cheese, pepper, a pinch of salt, and thyme. Set aside.
  • In medium bowl, pour lemon juice over apple slices to prevent apples from browning. Drain any remaining lemon juice and set aside.
  • Smudge a dollop of goat cheese on each crostini, and then top with an apple slice, lemon zest, and thyme.
