bartlett pear, goat cheese & honey pecan crostini’s are the perfect addition to your holiday recipe box. taking less than 20 minutes to prepare, this quick and easy recipe is great for a healthy tailgating snack or fall party food.
since labor day is the unofficial end of summer (praise hands) i’m jumping STRAIGHT into my favorite fall flavors. pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot cake, cinnamon spice goodies.. you get the drift. although I’m a sucker for all things pumpkin, i wanted to embrace the deliciousness of bartlett pears this year.
could you tell from my pear, pomegranate & pumpkin seed salad last week? very much team bartlett pears right now.
appetizers scream party food to me, and growing up my family n e v e r ordered appetizers. i really only experienced them at holiday parties, tailgates or big events. i got embarrassingly excited when appetizers were available — i mean, who doesn’t love finger foods!? or bite sized foods for that matter!? with this being the case, I had to make sure my fall party appetizer was ON POINT.
thanks to these delicious fall bartlett pears (& of course my fav goat cheese) i think i acheived the best healthy appetzier out there 😉
i ended up combining some sweet and savory flavors for this easy appetizer recipe ( which makes sense because i can never make a decision HA ) & was extremely happy with the outcome. these bartlett pear, goat cheese and honey pecan crostini’s are sure to impress!
i hope this easy party appetizer finds it way onto your fall menu this year, too!
