I had a little party with some friends recently and I made these roasted grape and ricotta crostini. I wasn’t actually going to share this recipe until I tasted it and had that “holy cow, I need to share this recipe” moment.

About these roasted grape crostini

Roasted grapes might be one of my favorite things. The flavor of the grapes is just intensified by roasting and the grapes are bursting with juice. I first tried them in this pork tenderloin with roasted grapes and ever since, I’ve been hooked. They are sweet, soft, and so flavorful.

It’s so easy to roast grapes, too. Simply wash and stem grapes, put them on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet, toss with a little olive oil, salt, and a few sprigs of thyme, and bake for 20-25 minutes. They should look slightly wrinkled (just slightly, we’re not looking for raisins here!) and the skins splitting just a bit.

For these roasted grape crostini, simply spread ricotta cheese on toasted bread slices (crostini). Place a few roasted grapes on each crostini and drizzle a little honey over it all.

You’ll love how easy and delicious this appetizer is (and so will your friends)!

Tip: Enjoy with a glass of chilled chardonnay. Fermented grapes with roasted grapes, a perfect match!

Prepping ahead

You could make the grapes ahead for this recipe. Let them come to room temperature or gently warm them before adding the ricotta to the crostini and topping with grapes and honey.
