Christmas lunch: Crostini with Boursin and tomatoes

Crostini with boursin and balsamico |

The lunch during the holidays tends to get a little bit left behind or maybe that is just me. It’s breakfast I worry about and than dinner and than, o no, we have to eat lunch as well! To be honest; in a lot of cases breakfast is late and so you might not need a lunch at all, but in case you do, a quick and festive bite is always a winner right? And this particular one is delicious. It won’t look bad as a snack or even as a starter for your dinner. Crostini with tomatoes |

The secret to this delicious crostini is really the cheese below it, in this case  Boursin. I’ve used the version with Garlic and Fine Herbs because I simply love garlic, but if you want a version without the garlic, that is there as well. Also perfect for getting rid of leftover bread you might have from the day before. Quickly roasted in a grillpan, toaster or in the oven, spread with some Boursin and some tomatoes and you’ll have a delicious bite.

  • cherry tomatoes
  • Boursin with Garlic and Fine Herbs
  • oliveoil
  • apple vinegar
  • balsamico

  1. Grill your bread for a few minutes until crispy and golden. If you want some more garlic flavor you can cut a garlic clove in half and rub the open side over the warm sandwich. You’ll be surprised how much flavor it gives.
  2. Cut your tomatoes in quarters and season with pepper and salt. Sprinkle some olive oil over them and some apple vinegar.
  3. Spread your crostini with the Boursin and top with the tomatoes. Sprinkle some balsamico over the tomatoes and eat straight away

  1. Scrumptious and colorful! I love Boursin.



  2. I love having ‘walk around food’ at Christmas because we’re all sitting out by the pool or canal all day. (better than having them inside underfoot all day.) 🙂

    These look yummy.

  3. On Christmas our breakfast is always late! And dinner is a bit on the early side, so we never get around to lunch. But this would be perfect the day after Christmas is our house! Very nice — thanks.

    • You’re right.. Ours tends to be late as well although especially on the first day there is often still so much to be done that we do get up on time… 😉 But yes would work brilliantly the day after Christmas too!
