Peach Honey Whipped Ricotta Crostini

I’m drooling just thinking about this crostini. It’s the perfect quick (but fancy) appetizer to truly impress your friends. The combination of toasty, sweet and cheesy is like a party in your mouth.

Not gonna lie, I could eat the whipped ricotta by the spoonful. Seriously…

Plus there’s something special about grilled bread instead of toasted. If you haven’t tried it, I hope you do for this recipe. I have a handy grill pan that makes it really easy to grill something quick (like a slice of bread) from the comfort of my kitchen.

This crostini is made from lots of layers of love: grilled ciabatta bread brushed with a little olive oil covered in a generous spread of whipped honey ricotta, topped with thinly sliced peaches and drizzled with more honey. And of course, garnished with fresh basil.
