Ingredients
  • 1 package rondelé by Président Garlic and Herbs Gourmet Spreadable Cheese
  • 1 baguette cut into 1/2 inch slides
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cup strawberries sliced
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil chopped
Assembling The Crostini
  1. Slice baguette into even portions. Brush baguette sleeves with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sprinkle lightly with salt and a few twists of freshly cracked pepper. Grill slices over medium heat until lightly charred, about 90 seconds per side.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the strawberries. Wash, de-stem, and slice strawberries in half or in quarters if berries are large. Toss berries with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, sprinkle lightly with salt, and transfer to a grill basket.
  3. Grill berries at about 400 degrees, stirring every so often until jammy, about 10 minutes. Remove from basket, transfer to a small bowl to cool.
  4. To serve, spread rondelé® by Président® Garlic and Herbs Gourmet Spreadable Cheese on each baguette slice and top with grilled strawberries. Top with chopped basil.
