Roasted Grape & Goat Cheese Bruschetta


The holidays are here, so an easy recipe for entertaining is a must! Roasted grape & goat cheese bruschetta is one of my favorites for easy entertaining and I am sharing it alongside 11 other bloggers and their favorite recipes for a very special 12 days of Christmas! Check out all the recipes here!

Roasting is seriously the most beautiful method of bringing out the sweetness in food. Hate a certain veggie? Roast it- it will change your life- my husband hated brussel sprouts til I came along...

Grapes do not necessarily need anymore sweetness, but roasting them along with some savory ingredients turn your standard grape to a delicious melt-in-your-mouth appetizer.

I love serving this VERY simple appetizer.  Cheese plates are an easy addition to parties and adding roasted grapes makes it look like I did not just slice cheese and put it on a dish ;)




Roasted Grapes & Goat Cheese Bruschetta a la A Bubbly Life

Directions:

1 cup of grapes
olive oil
kosher salt & pepper to taste
2 sprigs of chopped fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Line a baking sheet with parchment or foil
Lightly drizzle olive oil on grapes, sprinkle with salt, pepper and rosemary- Toss.
Bake for 20 minutes.

While grapes are roasting, take goat cheese out of refrigerator and allow it to reach room temperature (this makes it easy to spread on the baguette).
Slice baguettes and lightly brush with some olive oil.

After 20 minutes of baking, remove grapes from oven. If they are a bit "squishy" (technical culinary term, of course)  and you see some juice- they are done.  Still hard and no juice? Stick them back in for a couple minutes.

When grapes are done, set aside and put oven to broil, add sliced baguette pieces to oven.  Broil for approximately 2 minutes til lightly brown.

Plate roasted grapes, cheese and bread on platter for guests to make their own Or spread goat cheese on the baguette, add roasted grapes and eat! Remember to garnish with some rosemary!
