Raspberry Crostini with Ricotta, Honey & Walnut

Hi all, Cat from The Rustic Willow here again! I hope everyone is having a delightful spring. If your weather has been anything like Colorado’s then you’re probably experiencing sunny, 70-degree weather one day, and snow the next. My body, my lawn, and my car are so confused! Once we all start adjusting to the warmer weather, the snow swoops in and ruins our hopes and dreams.

Although I have mixed feelings about the weather of Colorado, I definitely don’t have mixed feelings about this recipe I whipped up to show you all. I’m always looking for simple breakfast ideas that stray away from the normal bacon & eggs breakfast. And this breakfast blew my socks off.

There’s nothing I love more than bread. Seriously–I think bread in everything is just phenomenal. So, having this lightly toasted bread was good enough for me. And then I topped it with creamy ricotta cheese, fresh raspberries and crushed walnuts. To finish it off I drizzled honey over everything.

The creaminess of the ricotta mixed with the sweetness of the raspberries, the crunch of the walnuts, and the deliciousness of the honey was so refreshing and scrumptious.

I love when a recipe is both delicious and pretty. I also love when it’s versatile–you can change up the fruit in this as well as combine different fruits.

I remember when I was little, my neighbor used to grow raspberries in his yard and bring us bowls full of them. I miss that so much–they’re sweet, soft, juicy, etc.

Now, let’s get to making! It’s quick, easy and painless to throw together. It comes together in about 2 minutes–isn’t that a beautiful thing?
