Recipe

Versatile, crisp croustade baskets can host a wide range of different fillings, such as this delicious combination of goat cheese, mint, and tomato.

Yield: Makes 12 croustades
Prep time: 10 Mins<Br>
Cooking time: 30 Mins<Br>

Ingredients

For the Croustade Baskets:

  • 4 slices of thin slice whole-wheat or white sandwich bread
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or olive oil

For the filling:

  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • Olive oil, to drizzle
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 oz (85g) rindless goat cheese
  • Mint leaves, for garnish

Special Equipment:

  • 2 in (5cm) round cookie cutter
  • 12-cup mini-muffin pan

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Trim the crusts from the bread. Flatten the slices with a rolling pin, and brush with the melted butter.

2. Using a 2 in (5cm) round cookie cutter, stamp out 3 pieces from each slice of bread. Push the bread, butter-side down, firmly into a 12-cup mini-muffin pan. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until well crisped. Remove the croustades from the pan and let cool on a wire rack.

3. Cut each cherry tomato in half. Spread on a baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 25 minutes, until the tomatoes are shriveled. Let cool.

4. Divide the goat cheese among the croustades. Top each with a tomato half, and garnish with mint leaves. Serve immediately.

Notes

Prepare ahead: The croustade baskets can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week. The roasted tomatoes can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.

    I didnt do the mint (other than plate garnish) and put a drop of honey on each. Big hit at book club.
