Grilled Crostini with Garlic Scape Cream Cheese and Tomatoes

Share

This recipe for Grilled Crostini with Garlic Scape Cream Cheese and Tomatoes is a super quick and easy appetizer recipe. Crostini are Italian canapés made from toasted or grilled discs of bread, piled high with different toppings including cheese, meat, and vegetables. I love to make my crostini with subtly flavored garlic cream cheese, topped with a thin tomato slice, lightly grilled.

To make the garlic scape cream cheese, I place cream cheese or ricotta in a food processor with garlic capes, basil, salt and pepper. Once these ingredients are combined, I spread the cheese on thinly sliced baguette which I top with a slice of tomato – I use small ripe tomatoes, but you could use cherry tomatoes if you prefer. I finish these crostini on the grill and serve!
