Tastes rich and crunchy, yet it's very quick and simple to prepare. Lovely with a nice glass of wine. Sometimes I make this for myself to eat with a salad.

This recipe was awesome! I toasted the pecan chips and chopped up my grapes. Then sprinkled both on top of the cheese. That way there's some grape in every bite! It got rave reviews from my guests! Will definately make again. Read More

These were good. I used toasted walnuts instead of pecans (didn't realize I was out of those until I was making this) and chopped the grapes like another person recommended. Also made it into a layered dip that I served with thinly sliced toasted french bread slices. Read More

I used the main idea but using what I had on hand substituted crackers for bread cream cheese for goat cheese and almonds for pecans. Still great. Read More

This recipe was a hit at a cocktail party. I used goat cheese flavored with basil and roasted garlic and toasted the baguette before spreading the cheese. Will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

Yum. Quick and easy. In fact almost too quick. My husband didn't have a bottle of wine opened yet because he anticipated it would take longer to make. I also screwed up and actually mixed the nuts in the goat cheese. Also I used straight goat cheese instead of the herbed kind and added more grape halves on top because it seemed like you needed a bit of sweetness with every bite. Read More

Very easy - but I recommend lightly toasting the bread before spreading the cheese and putting the toppings on. I also agree with the other reviewers - chop up the grapes in tiny pieces and put a lot of them on there. The grapes are absolutely needed to give depth and flavor to this appetizer. I was slightly disappointed by the lack of flavor but think it can be altered by stir frying the pecans in brown sugar/butter and using a lot of grapes. Easy good recipe - thanks! Read More

Incredibly easy to make and they look so good! I took the advice of the one the reviewers and chopped up the grapes and that made it perfect. Just to add one little note here: Bleu cheese and goat cheese are not the same thing. Goat cheese is a very mild cheese the consistency and color of cream cheese but a thousand times better.
