Roasted Grape and Ricotta Toast
This Roasted Grape and Ricotta Toast is an easy, elegant appetizer that’s perfect for any occasion. Oven-roasted grapes, infused with red wine vinegar and thyme, complement zesty lemon ricotta and sweet honey. This toast is perfect when paired with a delicious salad.
I watching the Pioneer Woman on TV recently and she was making a similar recipe, so I decided to make these Roasted Grape and Ricotta Toast. I wasn’t actually going to share this recipe until I tasted it and had that “holy cow, I need to share this recipe” moment.
It’s so easy to roast grapes, too. Simply wash and stem grapes, put them on a parchment lined rimmed baking sheet, toss with a little olive oil, salt, and a few sprigs of thyme, and bake for 20-25 minutes. They should look slightly wrinkled (just slightly, we’re not looking for raisins here!) and the skins splitting just a bit.
You’ll love how easy and delicious this appetizer is (and so will your friends)!
You could make the grapes ahead for this recipe. Let them come to room temperature or gently warm them before adding the ricotta to the crostini and topping with grapes and honey.
3 cups seedless red grapes
2 to 3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
4 sprigs fresh thyme
4 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
6 thick slices of sourdough bread
1 1/2 cups ricotta cheese
1 lemon, zested
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Toss the grapes with the red wine vinegar, thyme, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and some salt and pepper. Place on a small baking sheet or baking dish. Roast until the grapes are tender, wilted and juicy, about 25 minutes.
- Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat or you can do it on your grill. Brush the bread slices with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Grill on both sides until crisp and lightly charred in some places, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Spread the ricotta evenly on the bread. Top with the roasted grapes and their juices. Sprinkle with lemon zest and drizzle honey on top, then serve.
