Goat Cheese, Turkey Bacon and Caramelized Leek Crostini

Goat Cheese, Turkey Bacon and Caramelized Leek Crostini

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 leek, diced and rinsed (white and pale green parts only)
  • 8 strips turkey bacon, diced
  • 1 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, room temperature
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 loaf bakery bread, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • olive oil, for drizzling

 

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Add the leeks and bacon, and season lightly with salt.  Cook until the leeks are soft and browned and the bacon is crispy.  Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.

In a bowl, combine the sour cream and goat cheese.  Stir in the leeks and bacon, then season with salt and pepper.

Drizzle the bread slices with olive oil, toast under the broiler until golden, and top each slice with the dip.
