Crostini's are a go-to in our kitchen. They easily jazz up a simple piece of french bread and can topped with just about anything. This combination of the almost creamy leeks and sharp goat cheese is delicious. Pair this with a salad and you have an easy light dinner.
Whipped Goat Cheese & Leek Crostini
1 baguette, sliced
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium leek, sliced
1 garlic clove
3 ounces goat cheese
2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place sliced baguette on a cookie tray, and bake for about five minutes until baguettes are crispy. Turn baguettes halfway through cooking to ensure even baking.
Heat a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add butter and leeks. Saute for 10 minutes until leeks are soft. You do not want them to brown, just soften.
Combine goat cheese and milk in a bowl. Whip together with a whisk until smooth. The mixture will be fairly thick.
To assemble, place a generous layer of goat cheese mixture onto baguette. Top with 1-2 tablespoons leeks. Serve immediately.
