Blue Cheese Crostini Recipe

Prep Time Cook Time Serves
10m 10m Makes approximately 20 crostini
Blue cheese, hazelnuts and honey – you can’t go wrong! This is a super simple spread that you can either spread on crostini for your guests, or put it in a dish and let guests help themselves. You can make this a few days in advance and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.


  • 1 baguette
  • 7 ounces blue cheese (such as roquefort or a creamy gorgonzola), softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
  • Runny honey for drizzling


 Preheat oven to 350 °F.

Slice baguette into thin slices, 1/4 – 1/2 inch in width. Place on a baking tray and bake in the oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.

Using a fork, mix together the blue cheese and cream cheese. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least one hour. Spread mixture onto the cooled crostini. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts and then drizzle with a little honey. Serve immediately. You can make the crostini up to 30 minutes before serving, but not much more than that as the bread will start to go soft.


The spread can be made up to a day in advance and kept in the fridge until ready to use.
