Roasted Strawberry Crostini

Roasted Strawberry Crostini by Nutmeg Nanny

Remember a couple week ago when I made that delicious roasted strawberry dairy free shake? Well, I happened to have some roasted strawberries left and I wasn’t about to let them go to waste!  So I looked around my fridge and was lucky enough to find some goat cheese, prosciutto and arugula. Yeah…that would work.

Now I will be the first to admit that this crostini is not complicated but it’s packed full of flavor. It’s perfect for spring and I have visions of serving this at a lovely little outdoor patio party. Well, If had a patio…and I threw parties*…

*Confession: I have never thrown a party at my house. I’m such a pathetic adult.

    This looks too pretty to eat but I would most defiantly devour it.

    I love roasted strawberries. I think the first time I saw them was a recipe from Marla at Family Fresh Cooking – for yogurt with roasted strawberries and they were amazing. Roasted fruits are just THAT much better, like roasted grapes too. I have all these ingredients in my fridge right now – I think I know what my afternoon snack is going to be!!

    I’m diggin’ your roasted strawberry recipes :) And it’s pretty much a guarantee – if it has creamy goat cheese, I will love it.

    I have never tried roasting strawberries… They usually get devoured too fast at my house (by the hubby who can eat a pint of berries in a matter of minutes). I am going to hide some as soon as I find them at the farmer’s market so that I can give it a try. And, then I’m making crostini. I’m on board with just about anything made with arugula and prosciutto. :)

    Unless you count family, I’ve never thrown a party at my house, either. But I sure do want to now – just so I can make these!!

    Wow these look spectacular. I’m opposite of you–I’ve thrown a ridiculous amount of parties at my home so much so that when I just recently met a neighbor down the street he made the comment that we are the “party house”. WTF?!?!? It’s not like its loud music and raging until 3am… they are dinner parties. In any event… get to hosting girlfriend! lol.

    Wow…roasting strawberries? What an awesome idea! And I bet they go amazingly well with the goat cheese. I might have to make a batch of crostini this weekend now!

    LOL! I feel you on the parties–let’s get on that shall we? I know you’d host an awesome summer barbecue! These are so elegant, I could totally see them gracing a baby shower table too. So gorgeous.
