Several of you have asked how Miss A’s balsamic obsession began. Well, it started when I found a recipe for Strawberry Bruschetta on Annie’s Eats. I’m always on the lookout for quick, easy and healthy recipes to make for myself for lunch. I have a terrible time with this meal. I’m usually just cooking for myself, I don’t have a lot of time and I don’t want to over eat. I figured I could easily adapt Annie’s recipe to go on my little pita crackers (my current lunch obsession) for a quick lunch.
What I didn’t count on was how much Miss A would enjoy this dish as well. I mean it has goat cheese, basil and balsamic – not the type of ingredients that most little ones find palatable. Oh was I wrong on that one! She devoured her first one and kept right on going. So here’s the easy to make Strawberry Bruschetta Appetizer I adapted from Annie’s recipe, and Miss A’s favorite lunch.
Next add a bit of goat cheese to the pita crackers.
And finally top with the strawberries. If you’re serving this as an appetizer you’ll want to do so immediately, or hold off on adding the topping until you’re ready to do so to keep the crackers from getting soggy.
In our experience though – these don’t last long. We recently took a few plates to a bbq and not a single cracker was left. (And unlike the lemon bars, I didn’t fill up – well not entirely – on my own dish.) And as if there was any doubt, Miss A devoured her share before we got to the bbq that night.
I’ve even seen her lick the balsamic from the plate when she finishes her crackers. It’s hilarious. At least her obsession is a healthy one (unlike my own).
Now if I could just get her to eat a little protein we’d be in business.
