Blue Cheese Crostini with Pecans and Honey are little flavor bombs that will have you coming back for more! Crunchy little toasts piled high with warm, slightly melted blue cheese, crunchy pecans and sweet honey.
These are so simple to assemble. Once you have your crispy crostini, scoop on a mixture of crumbled blue cheese and chopped pecans. Broil for a minute, just until the cheese starts to melt. Then drizzle with honey and serve warm and watch how fast they disappear!
I think that crostini are one if the most versatile and delicious appetizers you can make! That's why I have a whole variety of crostini recipes to choose from. Mix and match or make them all!
Watch exactly how to make Blue Cheese Crostini with Pecans and Honey in this video recipe tutorial!
Blue Cheese Crostini with Pecans and Honey

- Top each crostini with a whole pecan. Drizzle each with about 2 teaspoons of honey. Serve warm.

Thank you for sharing the difference between Crostini and Bruschetta! Sometimes I find the Bruschetta is difficult to take a bite from, so if I can just take one big bite of a crostini I would be happy! I'm not a blue cheese fan, but every other soft cheese works for me...probably goat cheese or brie for this recipe. I love how you have combined all these flavors...can't wait to try this! Thanks!
Hi there, Millican! My pleasure! And, yes, goat cheese or brie would be great choices here!
Everyone loved these! They were definitely a hit! The flavor combo is perfect.
That's fantastic, Christina! Thank you for coming back to let me know!

Another crostini winner! And honestly, this sounds like the best one yet...although each and every one sounds quite tempting. The blue cheese + honey here is the winner, though...and I love the pecan addition. Do you deliver? 🙂
it looks soooooooo good!!! YUM!
Agreed on that crostini are one of the most delicious, easy to assemble, and versatile appetizers. They also can be an elegant appetizer which you've perfectly demonstrated in this post, Marissa. Love this combo!
Thank you, my friend!

I love the flavors you've got going on here Marissa! Perfect little appetizer for the holidays!
Thank you, Mary Ann!
Oh wow...I love that combination of blue cheese, pecans and honey! You're taking me back to Italy where we enjoyed far too many crostini with Parm and nuts and honey! (nahhhh - never too many!) 😉 These are divine, my friend!
mmm, love the idea of Parm on them!! Thank you, Annie!

I could live on crostini Marissa, and the mix of cheese and sweet (especially honey) is truly amazing. And sooo easy to put together! A winner recipe.
Thank you, Paula! It's a recipe that I keep coming back to for more than a decade - so easy and SO good. 🙂

Crostini are the best! You're right about them being so versatile. I love adding honey to cheese on an appetizer like this, plus pecans are always a win!!
So true, Katherine! Love pecans. 🙂

Hi Marissa! These sound even better than the last! What a fabulous combination! I buy locally made wildflower honey and it is so good! I never really liked honey until I started buying local, store bought honey just does not get it. If you have a crostini party can I invite myself? 🙂
You and Gary would top the guest list at ANY party I'd throw. Isn't it true about honey? The local, unprocessed variety has SO much more flavor!
