I’ve been working on some things for the blog that will be coming very soon but it has given me a whole new confidence in the kitchen and with my photos. Although I won’t take all the credit for it as I have been getting some super amazing pointers and so much great advice about the blog from the wonderful Jeanine at SixtimeMommy. She is such a wonderful person and I needed to mention her before I put up my recipe for strawberry feta bruschetta.
I had a vision in my head and I wasn’t sure how it was going to all come together but in the end, I really loved how it turned out and I hope you do too.
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dry parsley
French loaf (sliced about an inch thick) – 6-8 slices
6-8 strawberries sliced
baby spinach leaves (enough to cover each slice of bread)
feta cheese crumble
Slice your french loaf. Mix the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and dry parsley together in a bowl. Using a brush, brush this over your french loaf slices and set aside on a tray or platter. Next, slice your strawberries and set aside as well.
Next, add your balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a saucepan and bring to a boil. I did notice while boiling this on the stove, it has a very strong smell so make sure you use your overhead stove fan and open a window or two. Turn down the heat a little and continue to boil (about 15 minutes) until the vinegar starts to thicken. You can tell it’s ready by using the back of a spoon to check the thickness. Remove from heat once it’s thick enough.
On each slice of your french loaf, you want to cover each with baby spinach leaves, then place the sliced strawberries on top of them. Sprinkle with feta cheese and then drizzle the balsamic reduction on top.
This recipe was really easy and the reduction took the longest time as this was the first time I have ever done it. I loved the flavours that combined to make this a really amazing appetizer and just perfect for summer entertaining. Hopefully, this was easy enough that you will want to make up this strawberry feta bruschetta for your next party!
Would you serve this at your next party?
