Do you have a tendency to make lofty resolutions you can’t keep in the new year? It happens to all of us. This year, try to think of small, manageable habits you can incorporate into your everyday life. A great resolution would be to add one or two more fruits or vegetables into your daily diet.
Kickstart your new healthy eating habits on New Year’s Eve with SweeTango® apples. Eating more nutritious fruits and vegetables is an easy way to improve your life in the new year. With delicious recipes like this Apple and Goat Cheese Crostini, forming a healthy new eating habit is easier than you may think.
How To Make Apple and Goat Cheese Crostini
Goat cheese, thyme, lemon zest, and SweeTango® apples come together in an appetizer like no other. These flavorful and crunchy crostinis make a great finger food and will be a welcome addition to any party spread on New Year’s Eve. We think they’ll go well with your midnight champagne, too.
Apple and Goat Cheese Crostinis may be a fancy-sounding appetizer, but they’re simple to put together. Just stack the ingredients on individual crostini pieces and bake them. Place a few on individual plates or stack them altogether for serving, then drizzle a bit of olive oil and lemon juice over each one. When the delicious scent attracts your guests, they’ll find these crostinis just as tasty as they look!
Staying home with just the family this year? This is still an ideal appetizer. It’s easy to whip up and even kids love this apple-riffic app! Get the whole family on board with eating more produce in the new year.
New Year, New You with SweeTango® Apples
SweeTango® apples will be the star of the evening atop these Apple and Goat Cheese Crostinis. We chose these apples for their remarkable taste and crunch, both of which pair nicely with the other ingredients in these bite-size appetizers.
Take a bite out of a SweeTango® apple and you’ll taste a hint of honey, spice, and citrus flavor. You’ll also experience their remarkable crunchiness! These apples aren’t just good for baking or as toppings, though. We love snacking on them out of hand, too. Start your habit of healthy eating with SweeTango®! They make an easy and delicious breakfast on-the-go.
