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!

    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!

    1. Marissa says:

      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.

    1. Marissa says:

      Thank you, Paula! It’s a recipe that I keep coming back to for more than a decade – so easy and SO good. 🙂

  4. Katherine | Love In My Oven says:

    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!!

    1. Marissa says:

      So true, Katherine! Love pecans. 🙂

  5. Dorothy Dunton says:

    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? 🙂

    1. Marissa says:

      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!
