Crostini with Brie and Cranberry Chutney

Sometimes we just run out of time throughout the day. Am I correct? What sometimes can get even more crazy is when we are invited to a party and need to bring a dish. Whether it be an appetizer, side dish, or main course, we are always pinched for time, and the last thing we want to do is spend an entire afternoon in the kitchen hoping that your dish will turn out.

Well turn your attention to this simple and delicious appetizer. A crostini that is topped with brie cheese, cranberry chutney, and a cilantro leaf. What you are left with is pure heaven in a bite. Not only that but you will look like you spent all day in the kitchen making these mouthwatering bites.

Crostini with Brie Cheese and Cranberry Chutney Recipe

Lets get started.


  • 1/2 French baguette, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 round of brie cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup of cranberry chutney
  • fresh cilantro leaves
That is it. How simple is that?

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees.

Brush olive oil onto the top of each sliced baguette and place onto a large baking sheet.

Place into the oven for about 15-20 minutes or until they are a light golden brown. Remove and let cool.

Once cooled, place brie cheese on the base of each crostini. Top with about one tablespoon of cranberry chutney on top of each one, then place a cilantro leaf to fit.
Arrange on a serving platter and watch the people’s reaction when they bite into them.
You get a nice subtle crunch from the crostini, with the creaminess of the brie cheese, and then the subtle sweet and sour punch from the chutney. Enough said. These will be a big hit at your next party and will save you lots of time. Enjoy!

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
