Servings 12 crostini

Ingredients
  

For the Grapes:

  • 1 bunch seedless red grapes on the vine (~1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Crostini:

  • 1/2 baguette sliced into 1-cm thick slices (12 slices)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup soft goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the grill to 350 degrees F.
  • Toss the grapes in the olive oil, salt and black pepper so that they are fully coated.
  • Slice the baguette and brush both sides of each crostini with olive oil and sprinkle evenly with salt.
  • Place the grapes and the crostini on the grill. Cook the grapes for 3-4 minutes per side, or until the grapes have softened, lightened in colour, and get light grill marks. Cook the crostini for 1-2 minutes per side until it is lightly toasted and is golden brown.
  • Remove the grapes and crostini from the grill and set aside.
  • To assemble the crostini, spread 1 tablespoon of goat cheese over a slice of toasted crostini. Remove the grapes from the stems and add 4-6 grapes on top of the goat cheese (depending on the size of the grapes). Repeat for all the crostini.
  • Drizzle ½ teaspoon of honey over each crostini and top with a sprinkle of thyme leaves.
  • Serve warm with a glass of Singletree Siggy Siegerrebe and enjoy!

Notes

  • You can roast the grapes and toast the crostini in the oven instead. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Roast the grapes on a baking sheet for 20-30 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking. Toast the crostini for 2-3 minutes per side until golden brown and crisp. Then assemble following the instructions above. Enjoy!
