Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Slice baguette into 10 equal slices and arrange over a large baking sheet. Coat each slice with coconut oil and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until light brown and crispy.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Cook over medium heat for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in walnuts and peanuts. Continue to cook until the mixture has slightly thickened and caramelized.
Spread some of the mashed potatoes over each slice and top with sliced brie. Add some of the caramelized walnuts and finish with Zen Spirit culinary torch.
Optionally, garnish with fresh rosemary and serve immediately.
This sweet potato and brie crostini with candied nuts is absolutely delicious and easy to make appetizer you can easily prepare for your guests. The sweetness of the potato combined with creamy brie cheese and crunchy caramelized nuts is absolutely divine. These simple yet beautiful treats will definitely become a hit! Give them a try!
Although baguette is traditionally used for crostini, you can use any type of bread you have on hand. For this particular recipe, I've used 5 seed whole grain baguette (the extra crunchiness of this bread is amazing!) but, of course, you can choose a classic white baguette instead.
Caramelized nuts are definitely what gives this recipe its unique flavor. A nice combination of chopped walnuts and peanuts will be just perfect (you can use some other nuts but I find these best when caramelized). A pinch of cinnamon will do wonders when combined with a mashed sweet potato while creamy cheese will finish the overall taste of this lovely appetizer. Finish everything with Zen Spirit kitchen torch and serve immediately. Enjoy!
