Do you find your kids devour the app tray that you put out, for your guests. It may be due to the pre-dinner hour, but I think it’s also because of the presentation. Small, bite size, kid friendly, hand eating, delicious morsels. I can’t resist them, so how can I expect the kids to?

I often get inspiration, for the way I present food to the kids, from appetizers and these peach and goat cheese crostini are no exception. Plus, if I’m being totally honest, I love food that is versatile. Food I can serve for breakfast or lunch. Food I can serve to adults or kids. Food I can serve as an appetizer or an after school snack.

A little trick I like to do when I plan on serving a baguette at dinner, is slice up half the baguette, brush the slices with the olive oil and sprinkle on some salt. Then I place the other half of the baguette in the oven to warm while the slices are toasting. Kind of a two for one deal – little toasts I can store in an airtight container for later and half of a warm baguette for the dinner table.

The great thing is that these crostini are super easy to switch up too

  • Brush the halved and pitted peaches with some olive oil and try grilling them, cut side down, over a medium/hot grill for a few minutes, before slicing them for the crostini.
  • Pop the assembled peach & goat cheese crostini under the broiler for a few minutes to warm them up.
  • Drizzle on some honey or maple syrup to sweeten things up or turn these into a healthy dessert.
  • Try different cheeses like cream cheese or ricotta.
  • And absolutely try different fruit as the seasons change.

With autumn just around the corner, I plan on taking full advantage of the peach season, while I can and I think these Peach and Goat Chese Crostini are just the way to do it:)


Peach and Goat Cheese Crostini
  • 1 baguette
  • 1 (113g) package of pasteurized soft goat cheese
  • 2 peaches, halved, pitted and sliced
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • a few fresh basil leaves
  1. Slice the baguette into 1/4 inch slices. You will get roughly 60 slices from a whole baguette. I usually count 3 slices per person and only slice as much as I need.
  2. Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet (or multiple baking sheets if needed)
  3. Brush both sides of the baguette slices with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes, or until golden, turning half way through. Let cool on baking sheet.
  5. Spread on some goat cheese, top with peach slices and some torn basil leaves.
