Even though we’re lazy moms, we sometimes need something “fancy” we can make that we can take to a bit fancier of a party, do we not?
I have a few recipes that I use when I need something that has a bit of a “wow” factor, but let’s face it, it still has to be lazy. I mean, I don’t just play a lazy mom on the internet, I am one in real life. *ahem*
So, when lazy mom Stephenie emailed me a lazy recipe for Strawberry Bruchetta I just knew I could add this recipe to my it-may-look-fancy-but-it’s-still-lazy recipe arsenal.
Stephenie had this to say about her recipe, “It is absolutely so easy, like making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches then putting them in the oven. I know it has 2 extra ingredients but I consider olive oil and sugar staples. I have also made it without the olive oil. It looks beautiful and the tastes compliment one another so well.”
Lazy Strawberry Bruchetta
1 cup strawberries, hulled and diced
1 tbsp. sugar
1 French baguette, sliced on a bias
4 oz. goat cheese (you can also use brie)
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
¼ cup minced basil leaves
Preheat oven to 350
Combine the strawberries and sugar in a small bowl; toss to combine. Let the berries mingle for about 30 minutes so that they begin to release their juices. Spread a layer of goat cheese (or brie) on top of each baguette slice. Place in oven for 5 minutes or so till the baguettes are toasty. Top each slice with spoonfuls of the strawberry mixture. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Yum! I love a recipe that looks like you worked really hard at it, but you didn’t! Thanks Stephenie!
