How to make bacon brie apple crostini

Begin by preheating your oven – the first step of any recipe that is spending some time in the oven. Then slice up a baguette into 1/4″ slices. There is no need to use a ruler; if the pieces are a little bigger or smaller, it’s all good.

Slice a wheel of brie into pieces and place 2 slices onto each piece of bread. Lay all of the bread and brie onto a sheet pan and place it in the oven for 6-8 minutes (until the brie is bubbly!).

While the crostini are baking, cook a few slices of bacon and crumble them once they are done cooking. Also, slice 2 apples. It’s all coming together now!

After removing the pan from the oven, top each crostini with 2 apple slices and crumbled bacon. Drizzle maple syrup on top and you’re ready to serve!

What do I need to make crostini

There are several items that will make preparing a tray of bacon brie apple crostini easier.

Helpful Tips

  • Does your brie have a hard rind? Cut the rind off of the brie before slicing. If the cheese is too soft, wrap up the brie wheel and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Cut the rind off immediately upon removing it from the freezer.
  • Use a variety of apples. For example, use 1 Red Delicious and 1 Granny Smith for a more colorful spread!
