Whip it good

These crostini start out as any other crostini would- with good, crispy, olive oil basted bread. The perfect vessel for some delicious toppings. 

And while the crisp, tart Granny Smith apples and salty, cured prosciutto add depth and texture to the crostini, the whipped blue cheese is the real star of the show.

The whipped blue cheese is creamy, dreamy and oh-so-easy to make. Simply add some blue cheese crumbles, softened cream cheese and a bit of olive oil to your food processor. Now blend the hell out of it. Once it’s all light and creamy, it’s ready to spread onto the crispy toasts, and build your fancy appetizer.

Building the crostini

With your crunchy, seasoned toasts all slathered with blue cheese goodness, there really isn’t much left to do. Layer on a few slices of thinly sliced Granny Smith apple. Top that with a draped, luxurious slice of prosciutto. Give the whole shebang a quick drizzle of Honey Dijon glaze, sprinkle on a bit more blue cheese- and viola. Oh, YOU FANCY HUH?

Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 1/2 artisanal bread loaf (about 6 medium slices or 12 if small/baguette sized)*
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste 
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple,  thinly sliced 
  • 4 oz thinly sliced prosciutto  

Whipped Blue Cheese Spread

  • 3/4 cup blue cheese crumbles, plus more for sprinkling
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened 
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

Honey Dijon Drizzle 

  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 tbsp country style dijon or stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400.
    2. Lay bread on a foil-lined baking sheet.
    3. Brush each slice of bread on one side with olive oil to coat.
    4. Season each coated slice with salt and fresh ground pepper
    5. Bake the sliced bread for 10-15 minutes, or until golden and crisp.
    6. For extra golden color and crisp texture, place bread under your oven’s broiler for 1- 2 minutes after it bakes.
    7. While the bread is crisping in the oven, make the whipped blue cheese and honey dijon drizzle. Add the blue cheese crumbles, softened cream cheese, and olive oil to a food processor, and pulse until smooth and combined, scraping down sides with a spatula or spoon as necessary. Set cheese mixture aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, dijon and apple cider vinegar.
    8. Once bread is toasted, spread blue cheese mixture evenly on each toast.
    9. Top with thinly sliced apple and prosciutto, then drizzle with honey dijon sauce and sprinkle on a layer of additional blue cheese crumbles and serve!
