Christmas lunch: Crostini with Boursin and tomatoes

Crostini with boursin and balsamico | insimoneskitchen.com

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 | insimoneskitchen.com

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.

  1. Scrumptious and colorful! I love Boursin.

    Cheers,

    Rosa

  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!
