Aperitivo, Recipes, Sweet

Typically I make tomato and ricotta crostini, but grape ricotta crostini allow for the addition of one of my favorite ingredients – honey.

What’s great about this recipe is it yields a lot of grapes you can store in the fridge for later. All it takes is a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and the grapes roast really nicely.


  • 1 bunch purple grapes
  • 4 Tbs. olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 baguette, toasted and sliced
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 Tbs. parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 2 tsp. garlic


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Rinse grapes in cold water. Lay grapes on a pan. Lightly coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  3. Roast grapes in the oven for 40 – 60 minutes, until golden.

While the grapes are roasting

  1. Prepare the baguette and ricotta mixture.
  2. Slice the baguette down the center. Then slice the baguette in 3-4″ pieces.
  3. Lightly coat baguette pieces with olive oil. Toast in oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  4. Mix together the ricotta, egg yolk, parmesan cheese, and 2 tsp. garlic. Place in the fridge until grapes are done roasting.
  5. Remove grapes from the oven and allow to cool.
  6. Add ricotta mixture to half of each baguette slice, and grapes to the other half.
  7. Drizzle honey over the top of each ricotta grape crostini.
