Avocado Goat Cheese Crostini Recipe

Meghan Yager | Cake 'n Knife Updated

Avocado Goat Cheese Crostini is a creamy and spicy appetizer your guests will love. Always a hit at a party!

The holiday season may be over, but for some reason the party season seems to keep going for the first few months of the year. Perhaps it’s the football playoffs or perhaps it’s because people aren’t ready to let go of that holiday fun feeling.

Either way, I always find myself looking for the perfect tasty appetizer to serve my friends and family this time of year. An appetizer that I can serve whilst the playoffs are on, but also that are perfect for a family gathering too. 

This Crostini is perfect for every occasion.

I’m known as somewhat of the party guru in the circles I run in. Though I usually peg myself as an introvert, when I’m in my element (i.e. anything related to food), I become this social butterfly.

Thus I have a crazy need to always be feeding people.

It’s a very real possibility that I start to annoy people with my constant desire to fill their bellies, but then they taste something like these avocado goat cheese crostini. The silence that comes when everyone’s eating and enjoying their food is the best sound EVER.

Instead of going straight for the typical fried tailgating food, I am opting for something a little outside the norm this year. Avocado goat cheese crostini are where’s it at for me this party season.

The recipe is ridiculously simple, but the flavors are creamy, spicy and powerful. Even as I was setting up the photo shoot for these, I couldn’t resist stuffing one or two (ok, maybe three) in my face before getting down to business.

There’s no denying these crostini are a huge crowd pleaser and when they take less than 15 minutes to make, it’s tough to find a reason NOT to make them for your next gathering.

  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/2 pint Cherry Tomatoes

  5. Top with cherry tomatoes and crumbled goat cheese.
