Here is a simple and delicious Lemon Bruschetta with cheese appetizer or snack we all love. Give it a whirl for your next party or get together!

Bruschetta with Cheese

I love a great appetizer, especially one that incorporates the fresh fruits of summertime! I’m not a fancy shmancy girl though so EASY is top on my list of priorities when making a meal or small lemon fruit bruschetta bites like these. These are amazing and pretty easy to put together, here’s how you make them. Special thanks goes out to ALDI supermarket for sponsoring this post. (originally published 8/16)

Bruschetta with Cheese

Ok so I’m a sucker for anything with cream cheese. Add fruit and OH MY, yes you have my attention! Lol. Summertime is a great time to add fresh fruits to your otherwise fruitless dishes.

This fruit bruschetta is versatile in that you can add any fruit to the top, but blueberries are my all  time favorite so any way I can incorporate them I will. Take a peek at what we made, and just how easy it is to make.

So, as part of my partnership with ALDI, I got a delivery from them so I could try a few of their items, and choose a recipe to try as well. I chose this Lemon Fruit Bruschetta because it sounded delicious! I grabbed the bread and perishable items at a nearby ALDI and my girls and I had an afternoon of cooking together. 😉 

Goat Cheese Bruschetta

If you’ve never visited ALDI you’ve got to see how it’s different than other stores you’ve been in. You can see our experience and trip to our local store here 😉

  • 1 baguette or french bread sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Sprinkle of salt and black pepper is great when you’re baking the bread
  • A package of whipped goat cheese softened / room temperature
  • Freshly squeezed lemon juice optional, and zest if you like
  • Fresh honey is optional but adds sweetness to every bite, drizzle of balsamic vinegar

1 c blueberries fresh, optional but so good as a fresh element.

Bruschetta Cheese

Like I said, the main topping is Happy Farms Cream Cheese, lemon juice + zest, and Happy Farms Preferred Honey Goat Cheese which I don’t buy often just because I don’t think about it but when we put all of these items together I remembered how much I really enjoy it.

This Lemon Fruit Bruschetta can be a great appetizer if you’re headed to spend time with the girls playing BUNCO, or having friends over but this afternoon it kinda’ became our lunch. Totally acceptable on a a Saturday right??!!

I like to get my kids involved in the “cooking” process especially if it is something easy to make and we can eat it almost immediately.

Squeezing the lemon, stirring, and putting some lemon zest into the mixture are great jobs for them. When it’s blended well you can serve it on the side for people to put on the toasted bread themselves, or serve them ready made topped with fruit and a few drops of honey…they’re heavenly!!

These are great when you have people over, a dish to bring to a potluck, or just a nice snack to make for your family. It’s fabulous during the summertime using fresh fruits, or try our dried fruit dessert. Blueberries are our favorite addition!

Appetizer with Goat Cheese

  • Slice baguette and preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lay pieces of baguette slices on baking sheet and brush with olive oil on both sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Toast the baguette for about 12 minutes total flipping over halfway thru. Remove when they are very lightly golden brown and allow to cool.
  • In a small bowl use the back of a spoon to cream the cheese, add lemon juice and incorporate for a citrus flavor. Taste and see if you want to add more along the way. You can incorporate a bit of zest in there too if you like.
  • When bread is cooled, spread goat cheese on top, drizzle with honey or balsamic glaze with a few fresh blueberries or fresh mozzarella cheese slices on top to serve.

For a savory mixture you could mix it up. Make some that are sweet with honey and others with a tomato mixture. Just use a can of drained diced tomatoes, toss with olive oil, diced garlic cloves, fresh basil.
