Oh, but wait… we can’t forget this one. I’ve made this recipe twice in the last week for two separate holiday party appetizers. It was a huge hit… and super simple to make!
cranberry orange brie crostini.
Recipe Credit: Two Peas and Their Pod
- 1 baguette, cut into 1/2 inch slices
- 1 jar orange marmalade [~1 tsp. per baguette slice]
- 1/4 lb. brie cheese, thinly sliced
- 1 1/2 c. dried cranberries
- 1 c. chopped pistachios
Preheat oven to 400*F.
Spread each baguette slice with about 1 teaspoon of orange marmalade. Next, add a piece of brie to each slice. Place baguette slices on a large baking sheet. Bake for 4-5 minutes, or until the brie is melted. Remove from oven.
Top cheesy baguette slices with a few dried cranberries and sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Serve warm.
I am clearly loving the red and green holiday combo of cranberries and pistachios this year – mmm! Well, I’m hitting the hay with a tummy full of Japanese cuisine and homemade hot fudge & roasted almond sundae…
- eat more food.
- drive home [again].
I’m really looking forward to my regular ‘clean eats’, regular exercise, and regular feeling of being healthy. Can I get an amen?
Oh, but wait… then there’s our family’s annual homemade Doughnut Day.
