Whipped Honey Goat Cheese Crostini with Simple Strawberry Sauce :: This speedy crostini is ready to take your brunch game to the next level!

I’ve been hopelessly off my game this week.

In an attempt to stay positive and not fling myself at the floor in exasperation every time I run out of gouda, I decided to channel my inner art teacher. “Those aren’t mistakes, they’re happy accidents! Turn it into something else!” Does anyone else have visions of  Bob Ross floating around in their head now? You’re welcome.

(Note to self: buy more gouda!)

My breakfast, por ejemplo, started out with a string of fails. My baguette got a little crispy on the counter. Fail.

Solution: Oh hey there toast!

The honeyed goat cheese I picked up from the fancy cheese aisle  is too crumbly to spread. #Fail

Solution: Whip it!

We’re out of berries? And jam!?

Solution: Frozen berries! I can totally make sauce out of that. I think. I mean, OF COURSE I CAN!

After taking that first magical bite, all my fails floated away. Now THAT’S a happy accident! It took everything (ev.er.y.thing) in my power not to shove the entire tray of crostini into my mouth.

Then I saw the chickpea barreling at me full-force. It’s share or be scaled, so I leaned over to give her a bite, just then remembering one of the cardinal rules of parenting: absolutely no raw honey under two years of age! That’s none. Nada. Zip. Zilch! Yet here I was about to hand deliver it to my child’s face. Face meet palm. Palm, say hello to face.

Let’s just pretend I didn’t almost do that. Yikes! Where’s Bob when you need him?!

Seriously.

Questions & Reviews

    1. Ohmygosh yessss try it! It’s especially good whipped, it gets all airy and creamy like cream cheese and has the most intense flavor… I love it so!

  1. If my fails looks like this, I would be doing a victory dance daily. I’d say you turned this around and made Bob Ross proud.

  2. Yum Jenn! Happy accidents that’s awesome! Who doesn’t love goat cheese smeared on toast but the honey and strawberry make this special. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I accidentally fed Meghan honey once was she was under 1. She survived. 🙂 I did a minor freak out at the time, of course. I’m not sure how our kids survive with all these rules. 😉

    I love happy accidents. And since I haven’t had any breakfast yet, this post is totally making my stomach growl. Totally wishing I had some goat cheese right now!
