Strawberry Bruschetta

Looking for a fun and delicious appetizer to add to your repertoire? Strawberry Bruschetta is simple, beautiful and yummy! I first enjoyed this unique appetizer at my friend's wedding shower and instantly fell in love. As you know, I love just about anything that can be served on toasted bread! Fresh sliced strawberries adorn a spread of cream cheese and cinnamon and are drizzled with honey for a sweet and savory treat. Get ready to eat the whole plate!

Strawberry Bruschetta
A sweet and fun appetizer treat. 
Serves 6-8

1 skinny loaf French bread ("take and bake" is best but a baguette would also work)
1/2 pound strawberries, rinsed and sliced
8 oz. cream cheese, softened (or if you can get your hands on marscarpone cheese it's fantastic in this!)

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Slice the loaf thinly and arrange pieces on a baking sheet. Bake for 5-6 minutes until crunchy on top but not completely hardened. Remove and let cool. Once cooled spread each piece with cream cheese then sprinkle with cinnamon. Top with two strawberry slices and drizzle with honey.

This snack is addictive. You've been warned!
