The Appetizer for your Future Social Gathering

Balsamic Blackberry Bruschetta with Whipped Ricotta

You will never take leftovers home!

With summer in full swing, I don't know about you, but my social calendar is booked until the end of August with potluck after potluck. I always struggle to come up with something different to bring, but these tasty bites are never a let down!

Blackberry Brushetta with Whipped Ricotta

Section 1: Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta

  • 1 Tbsp honey

  • 2 cups blackberries

  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

  • Fresh basil, sliced thin

  • Honey (to drizzle over the top)

  • 1 french baguette, sliced into

  • 2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil of Italy

  • Salt, to taste

Section 2: Directions

To make the crostini:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Rub the olive over one side of your baguette slices and place them on the sheet. Sprinkle your slices with salt to taste then bake them for 5 minutes. Set them aside to cool when done.

To make the Brushetta:

  1. Add 1 cup of blackberries and 1 Tbsp of balsamic vinegar to a sauce pan and heat them over medium high heat. Mash the berries with a fork and allow the sauce to simmer for 1-2 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Then pour the sauce over the remaining cup of blackberries and stir them both together. (Sometimes I'll cut the remaining blackberries in half if they're too large.) Set aside to cool.

  2. Add the ricotta and 1 Tbsp honey to a bowl and whisk them together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Place the bowl in the fridge to chill.

To Assemble the Brushetta:

  1. Take a crostini and layer it with a small amount of your whipped ricotta and balsamic blackberries. Drizzle the bruschetta with a little honey sprinkle fresh basil on top. Serve immediately!
