Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.

  • Toss grapes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, thyme, and oregano together in a medium bowl. Spread grapes out evenly on the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until grapes are tender and their skins start to wrinkle, 12 to 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, brush baguette slices lightly with remaining olive oil and place on another baking sheet.

  • Toast in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove grape mixture and crostini from the oven and let cool slightly.

  • Mix ricotta cheese and lemon zest together in a bowl. Spread onto each crostini and top with grape mixture. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve.

The list of simple ingredients belies the WOW factor experienced by tasters. Served a NZ Sauvignon Blanc with it and it was a winning combo. The recipe is a snap to put together and SUPER tasty - many proclaimed they were "addicted". Be sure the bread is nice and toasty from the oven as the crunch is a nice counterpoint to the super sweetness of the grapes. I'd bought grapes that were already sweet so couldn't imagine they'd change after cooking. WRONG! After roasted, they developed another more complex dimension of sweetness. Forgot the glaze but NP, and could've upped both the herbs and ricotta (had lots of holes in the French bread & needed more ricotta to 'plug' them up for the grape topping.) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
