After a long day on Saturday I really just wanted a nice simple meal so I could curl up and read or watch TV. So I came up with this recipe, because it was simple. Very few ingredients and it can be used well as an appetizer or as a light meal with some fruits, meats and/or cheese.
Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut bread into 1/2″ slices, cut in half if using a wider bread like an Italian bread.
I also made a version with Spinach and Artichoke Hummus with Gouda cheese.
Plum and Brie Crostini
- 1 Plum ~ 1 packet of Stevia (or 1 TSP sugar) ~ Brie Cheese ~ Loaf of Bread (I used Ciabatta) ~ Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) ~ Pinch of salt
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut bread into ½" slices, cut in half if using a wider bread like an Italian bread. Brush both sides with EVOO and bake for 10-15 minutes flipping halfway through. While the bread is baking cut the Plum and blend to a pulp like consistency. I used my MagicBullet but a food processor or blender would work too. Mix in the sugar and a sprinkle of salt. When the bread is ready spoon onto the bread and top with slices of Brie. Bake in the oven for 8-15 or until the cheese is slightly melted.
- I also made a version with Spinach and Artichoke Hummus with Gouda cheese. It was hard to pick a favorite.

Having a plate like that for dinner is one of my very favorite things to do. I’m planning on it this weekend!
It is so easy to throw together! Perfect for warm nights. Do you add anything different to your spread?

Really you can’t go wrong with Brie!

WHOA… I think…. I know.. I am going to the grocery store after work and making this for dinner.
Hope you like it! So easy to put together and yummy too!
I would like a whole loaf worth of each! hahaha
Haha! I don’t usually eat bread but I wanted to shove it all done my gullet!
Cheese is probably one of my favorite snacks! Love Brie and Gouda! I would be in heaven eating these crostinis!
I could probably eat a whole wheel of Smoked Gouda! So good!
I thought I knew what a crostini was but I was clearly confused! this is the perfect appetizer!
Haha! I know that feeling. It is perfect for an appetizer, great finger food.
Totally pinning this!!! I drooled yesterday when you first showed the picture. Yes, please!
Thank you so much! Hope you like it!
I love love love simple bites like this!
Thank you. Yes, grab and go is always nice.
yummy and easy….it’s a thumbs up in my book!
Thank you. Easy is always good!
Yummy! I wish the people in my house liked dinners like this. I’d eat things like this every night! I love to mix tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil for a crostini topper. So good! Makes me excited to get some tomatoes planted for the summer 🙂
Girl you need to make a “you” night, make these, grab some wine, and a bath! Caprese Crostini, love it!

I just had to refrain from licking my computer screen.
I think one night I’m going to tell my family to feed themselves and I’m eating this.
Haha!! That would be awesome! Mac and cheese for them and crostini’s for you!
This looks so so delicious!
Thank you! I really could have eaten them all!

You had me at brie! 🙂 I love brie with fig too. It goes so well with everything. Those crostinis look amazing. Tapas make the best dinner. Thanks so much for the idea. 🙂
Ohhh brie and fig would be amazing! I love me some Tapas!!!

LOVE brie, this looks delish!!
Thank you! It was a nice light summer night kinda meal.
Brie and plum can do no wrong…but I think you did them very well 😀 That’s really neat your little recipe widget thing!!
Thank you! I am a huge plum lover, so it was perfect when it caught my eye in the supermarket. It is a WordPress add in called Recipe Card.
i could eat brie everyday, all day.
Me too girl! Or just cheese in general! 😉
Yum! This looks so good!
Thank you. It is a nice quick light meal.
Bri is my favorite cheese! Mmmm…. you are making me hungry!
That is always good to hear! Bri can do no wrong!

So, I love how you’re like “I just came up with this recipe.” ha! I have a hard time doing that 🙂 But it looks good! And sounds easy enough.
Haha! Sorry, they do just seem to pop into my head or by searching the grocery store. It was really easy, hope you give it a try. You really can top them with anything.
