In-Season Eats: Goat Cheese Toasts

You’re probably wondering why the first picture you’re seeing is a grapefruit, huh? You clicked a link for Goat Cheese Toasts and you see grapefruit? What’s the deal?

Well, when I ventured out to right this In-Season Eats article this month, the first food that popped into my head was grapefruit because {1} I’m pregnant and crave grapefruit 24/7 {2} it’s in season –shocking I know–and {3} it is so amazingly sweet and delicious this time of year!

But instead of just eating it plain or throwing it into a dessert, I wanted to use this in a savory and different way than you’d expect. After a quick search on bhg.com, I found the perfect appetizer, snack or light lunch using grapefruit: Goat Cheese Toasts. It’s a creamy, cheesy, salty, sweet, spicy and juicy bite. Seriously delicious and completely out of the box!

To prep for this recipe, start by segmenting some grapefruit. How juicy and yummy do these look?

Once your grapefruit is ready to go, it’s just a matter of spreading and stacking. Start out with some slices of baguette and spread with goat cheese. Top with salami, some grapefruit and coarse ground black pepper. I love the color of the pepper on the grapefruit! So pretty!

Then drizzle the whole thing with a little honey and serve! Feel free to omit the honey, the salami or the pepper. Make these how you like them and enjoy!

Believe it or not, my 4 year old loved these and tried to hog them all to herself! Next time I make them, I’ll make sure she’s down for her nap.
