Looking for easy Christmas appetizers? My Pomegranate Crostini recipe is the perfect place to start!
Here's a little confession... we're in the home stretch to Christmas and I haven't bought a single Christmas present yet. I know I have a good excuse with the twins, but I see some online shopping in my future this week. Friends and family... feel free to send me your ideas to help a girl out! Christmas this year is definitely not going to be the spectacle it normally is, but I'm ok with that. How are you doing with your Christmas shopping?
Even though we're not doing a big Christmas, I'm still hoping to make a few festive dishes for the Hubs and me to enjoy at home. Easy Christmas appetizers and truly the way to go and my Pomegranate Crostini recipe is perfectly festive for the occasion.
Easy Christmas Appetizers -Pomegranate Crostini Recipe
Whether you are having a low key Christmas like us or throwing a huge party this year these easy Christmas Appetizers are perfect for your holiday menu. Wouldn't these look gorgeous on a holiday table?
My Pomegranate Crostini recipe uses freshly toasted bread, creamy goat cheese sweetened with honey, perfectly tart pomegranate and salty pistachios.
The result is a plate that literally takes minutes to throw together, but looks straight out of a fancy magazine. That's my kind of cooking, friends!
These flavors in the Pomegranate Crostini recipe all pair so perfectly together and I love how festive it looks with the red and green. The creamy sweetened goat cheese is sheer perfection with the toppings. I'm a firm believer in the power of goat cheese. 🙂
I buy goat cheese already sweetened with honey at ALDI, but if you can't find that just add some honey to regular goat cheese. The trick to spreading it on the bread is allowing it to come to room temperature first.
I know this easy Christmas appetizer would be a hit at everything from a nice date at home to a fancy dinner party at your home. It's also a great recipe to throw together at the last minute if you need a potluck dish without a lot of fuss.
So while I'm working on Christmas shopping, give this Pomegranate Crostini recipe a try! I know you'll love it.
Happy cooking everyone!
