This originally was featured on the DC Ladies Blog but the recipe was too easy and too good to not share!
Earlier I posted savory bleu cheese and pecan cookies, which were awesome and easy and fun to eat for breakfast, if that’s your thing (which, evidently it is mine). Anyway, those cookies were the round 2 to this even easier, and also quite charming, appetizer. Because the whole thing takes about 8 minutes to prepare and assemble this might be perfect for when you have surprise company or perhaps need reinforcements at a cocktail party.
Candied Pecans and Bleu Cheese Bites
Candied Pecans, recipe here
Bleu Cheese crumbles
Your freshly made, or store bought pecans get a good chop and are set aside.
Cut a French baguette into thin slices and toast lightly. (This isn’t really necessary, but generally speaking there are few things better than warm bread). With the back of a spoon “spread” the crumbled bleu cheese on top of the baguette slices.
Sprinkle on top of the bleu cheese and the chopped candied pecans and a light drizzle of honey.
Each bite is like a divine sampling of a cheese platter at the most divine wine bar, and easy to do and made with ingredients that are probably in your pantry!
Happy Holidays – wishing you delicious entertaining!
