The Christmas bells are on their way so crack open those cranberries and get your festive cooking on the go! Today I’m ditching the carbs and offering a chipped sweet potato alternative to the traditional bread crostini. Plus, the bacon is optional (but delicious) in these bacon, cranberry, goats cheese, sweet potato ‘crostini’. The perfect gluten free Christmas appetizer!
As the Twins have gone gluten free, we find ourselves eating less wheat as a family. I love goat cheese and cranberry as a flavor combo and wanted to offer a Christmas appetizer for that everyone can enjoy. Homemade sweet potato chips make the perfect base for this topping and even my picky three year olds were sold.
This is one of the recipes that you can pick and choose how homemade you go. You can buy sweet potato chips, you can buy cranberry sauce… how much you make yourself is up to you. Either way, your guests will be blown away because this Christmas orders are delicious.
Less chatter, more cooking from me… get stuck into the recipe below. Fill the bar board with Christmas nibbles, pour the wine and have a very Merry Christmas.
I hope you enjoy this christmas gluten free appetizer as much as I do. These bacon, cranberry, cheese gluten free crostini make the perfect orderve, snack and party food for the Holiday season. I love that the healthier choice can be so delicious… the sweet potato works brilliantly.
When you have a huge dinner to come, it’s never a good idea to stuff yourself with carb filled apps. Bonus, you’ll have plenty of cranberry sauce leftover for your dinner too.
And remember… if you can’t face making it all from scratch, pick up some readymade chips and cranberry sauce. You guests will be none the wiser 😉 And you have some veggie folks coming over just omit the bacon for an delicious vegetarian christmas appetizer.
More festive posts to come, I love this time of year!
