Our dinner rolls become the perfect bite-sized crostini when sliced horizontally, creating pretty little rounds that bake up golden brown and crunchy with a little olive oil spray and a pinch of sea salt. And while the topping possibilities are endless, here is a decadent bite that goes great with a glass of wine, white or red!
- 3 ea Éban’s Dinner Rolls, thawed and sliced ¼” thick horizontally to create rounds
- Olive Oil spray
- Sea Salt
- 1 cup Red Seedless Grapes, halved
- 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 tsp Olive Oil
- ½ tsp Honey
- ¼ tsp Sea Salt
- ⅛ tsp Black Pepper
- ¼ tsp Fresh Thyme Leaves, about 2-3 sprigs
- ½ tsp fresh Lemon Zest
- ½ wheel Boursin Cheese with Garlic & Fine Herbs
- ¼ cup Pecan Pieces (Pistachios would be nice as well), roasted & salted preferably
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the bottom of a baking sheet tray generously with olive oil spray then place Éban’s Dinner Rolls sliced rounds on the tray in a single layer. Spray the tops of the rounds with olive oil spray and then sprinkle each with sea salt.
- Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool completely while making the grape mixture.
- Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees for roasting the grapes.
- Combine the grapes, vinegar, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl, stirring to coat the grapes evenly. Place the mixture in a small casserole dish or pie pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray and set on the center rack in the preheated oven.
- Roast the grape mixture until the grapes begin to wilt and become syrupy, about 20-25 minutes.
- Remove roasted grapes from the oven and add the thyme leaves and lemon zest to the mixture
- To assemble the crostini, place a small spoonful of Boursin cheese on each crostini (about 2 teaspoons), then add a small amount of roasted grape mixture on top of the Boursin. Top each crostini with a sprinkle of pecan pieces and serve.
Makes about 15 pieces
The roasted grape mixture can be made several days in advance and kept in a covered container in the refrigerator. Let it come to room temperature before serving.
