Last week, I hosted a (greatly inspiring) lunch meeting on my patio, and if you follow our lovely Tristan on Instagram, you may have noticed that the crostini we served up were a huge hit! They look good on the table, are exceedingly delicious, and deceptively easy to make (my favorite combination).
If you are like me, you want to eek out every last drop of summer goodness this weekend. Serving up peaches with fresh basil is an excellent place to start. You’ll need something to go with that rosé, right?
// Peach & Basil Crostini //
Balsamic Glaze (this stuff is awesome)
Turn oven to broil.
Peel, pit, and slice peaches into long thin slices and place into a bowl. Drizzle with honey. Stir.
Thinly slice (chiffonade) your fresh basil so it’s ready to go.
Slice baguette into roughly ¼” slices. Arrange on cookie sheet and lightly brush with olive oil. Toast under broiler. Repeat for other side.
Spread just shy of 1 teaspoon of mascarpone onto each of your crostini. Dust with cracked black pepper. Add 2 peach slices to each crostini. Drizzle with balsamic glaze. Finish with fresh basil.
