When it comes to parties, nothing makes us app-ier than a table filled with delicious bite-sized appetizers. There’s something so welcoming about a smorgasbord of single-serve foods, don’t you think? We like to keep our finger on the pulse when it comes to finger foods, dedicating ample time to finding, trying and concocting the best small bites for our upcoming gatherings, which is why today we are teaming up with TRISCUIT to share a recipe that may just steal the show at the party. Read on for the details.
But first, let’s go back a short while ago to when TRISCUIT flash-funded 50 artisan food makers on Indiegogo. They selected makers who started with a small idea and made it into more. One of the lucky makers was Emily Heizer Hall of Razzbourne Farms. She has perfected the art of making goat cheese and we can totally vouch for her skills. Her cheese is ah-mazing.
We’ve combined her chévre with grilled strawberries and a balsamic glaze for an “mmmm”-worthy appetizer that won’t disappoint.
Don’t have time for grilling? Substitute the berries with strawberry jam and a drop of balsamic vinegar for a quick-and-easy alternative.
— TRISCUIT Crackers
— balsamic glazed strawberries
— Razzbourne Farms chévre goat cheese
— mint leaves
1. Cut strawberries in half and grill for two minutes on each side.
2. For the glaze, whisk ½ cup balsamic vinegar and two tablespoons honey in a small sauce pan over high heat. Let simmer for about eight minutes.
3. Construct the appetizer by adding goat cheese and grilled strawberries to a TRISCUIT Cracker and drizzling balsamic glaze on top. Garnish with a mint leaf.
First grill your strawberries for two minutes on each side. Try for grill marks on them to get that caramelly flavor.
Next, make your balsamic glaze. If you have leftovers, you can drizzle this on other grilled fruit for a tasty snack.
Time to assemble your TRISCUIT Cracker. First add goat cheese, then a strawberry, some glaze and a sprig of mint.
Voila! You’re about to experience heaven in your mouth.
Not only are these delicious, but they are so good looking! I dare say, they could be models ;)
