This Fontina Apple Crostini is a delicious appetizer! Crusty bread with salty cheese and a sweet apple make this an irresistable combination!


  • 1 loaf Ciabatta bread, cut into 1โ€ thick slices
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 6oz Cello Fontal cheese, grated
  • 1 oz Copper Kettle Cheese, finely grated
  • 1 small Honeycrisp apple, sliced thin
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic glaze


  1. Preheat the oven to broil.
  2. Brush the Ciabatta bread with olive oil, then spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  3. Toast for 1-2 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Keep a close eye on it because it will cook quickly!
  4. Once the bread is toasted, remove it from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees.
  5. Sprinkle the Fontal over each slice of bread.
  6. Place it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted.
  7. Sprinkle each slice with a pinch of Copper Kettle cheese.
  8. Top each piece of bread with two apple slices.
  9. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve immediately.
