Cheesy Apple Walnut Bruschetta
Crusty toasted baguette slices spread with smooth, creamy cheese and topped with crisp apples, sweet raisins, earthy walnuts and a drizzle of honey!
- 4 oz French bread baguette, sliced diagonally into ½ oz slices (about ½” thick)
- 4 wedges of The Laughing Cow Creamy White Cheddar cheese, softened to room temperature
- ½ a medium apple, chopped small
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- 1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
- 1 teaspoon honey, I held a teaspoon under the bottle as I drizzled over the 8 baguette slices and it came out to about a teaspoon
Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the baguette slices on a foil lined baking sheet and spray the tops with cooking spray. Flip the slices over and spray the other side as well. Place the baguette slices in the oven for 10-14 minutes until the edges are golden.*
Place the cheese wedges in a dish or on a plate and use a butter knife to mash the wedges and stir them into a creamy spread. Spread each toasted baguette slice with the cheese, dividing it evenly amongst the bread (each slice will get ½ a wedge of cheese).
Divide the chopped apples evenly amongst the baguette slices and place them on top of the cheese. Top the apples with the raisins and walnuts. Drizzle each piece with a light zig-zag squiggle of honey and serve.
*If you are only using one serving of bruschetta for a snack, you can either make all the baguette slices and use them as needed for a few days (store in a sealed Ziploc bag) or you can just make the toasted baguette slices as needed. I like making all of them at once because then they’re ready when I want to pack them/eat them and building my snack only takes a minute or two.
