What kind of cheese do I need?

We highly suggest that you make these roasted grapes with cheese crostini with creamy brie or thick goat cheese. The flavors will combine and explode in your mouth! 

However, if you can’t find either at your local grocery store, you can try using whipped ricotta, or even softened cream cheese. They both will give you the same appearance, but the flavor profiles will be different. In a good way, of course. Maybe try all the cheeses on this crostini? 

Now, there’s a thought….

How do you roast grapes?

Roasting grapes is easy, and it will make your whole house smell so good. Here’s how to roast grapes:

How to roast grapes for appetizer recipes.

Step 1 – Cut your grapes in half.

You can opt to roast them whole, but we found they roasted through and looked better when sliced in half.

Step 2 – Get your oven nice and hot by pre-heating the oven to 425 degrees.

Step 3 – Place your grapes on a cookie sheet or oven safe pan, and place on the top rack of your pre-heated oven.

Step 4 – Roast for 10-15 minutes, stirring lightly about every 5 minutes.

Watch carefully for the perfect point where the skins start to brown, bubble and sweat. Your roasted grapes are done and ready to devour! They reminded me of those glorious days of my childhood when my mother used to juice fresh grapes and we would take a small swig of that warm fresh grape juice. Mmmmm.

Now that you have your roasted grapes, let’s make the perfect appetizer with them. This is so easy, so simple, and so elegant. 


The fresher the better for these little roasted grapes. So it is best to have your baguettes prepped for right when those grapes come out of the oven.

But don’t let that discourage you from taking it to your get-together. They are still very yummy after sitting out for some time.

To assemble your roasted grape appetizer:

  • Slice your baguettes into little bite size pieces.
  • Roast them in your oven at 425 degrees until beginning to brown.
  • Let them cool slightly.
  • Layer the baguette with goat cheese or a slice of brie cheese. For the mild taste buds, the brie seems to please. For goat cheese lovers, they will drool over a nice thick creamy layer.
  • Place 2-3 roasted grapes on top of the cheese.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze right before serving.
