Ingredients

  • 1 loaf French bread
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Black pepper Freshly ground
  • Fresh thyme
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Honey

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375. Slice French bread on the diagonal, about half an inch thick. 
  • Brush one side of bread with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Arrange on a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes or until lightly golden. Don't overbake — you're making crostini, not crackers. 
  • Spread each slice with ricotta cheese. Sprinkle with black pepper and fresh thyme. Press in some walnuts and blueberries.
  • Drizzle with honey. Add additional salt, to taste. 

Notes

You can leave out the blueberries if they aren't in season, or substitute figs or blackberries.
