I love Sunday mornings. Nothing to do, nowhere to go, no alarms to wake me up at 6:30 in the morning. It’s also the day we have fun with our food – because we actually have time to really sit down and enjoy what we are eating. I recently discovered Bays English Muffins and have been OBSESSED with them.
Last weekend we made these amazing Strawberry, Ricotta, and Balsamic Bites that have the perfect combination of sweet and savory. The lemon zest adds a perfect tartness to the ricotta and goat cheese and the strawberries have a wonderful sweetness to that layers with the balsamic glaze, making each bite perfection in my mouth.
Strawberry, Ricotta, and Balsamic Bites
- 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
- 1 pkg. (4 oz.) goat cheese
- 3 teaspoons grated lemon rind, divided
- 4 BAYS English Muffins, any variety, split
- 8 medium strawberries, trimmed, sliced
- 2-1/2 tablespoons balsamic glaze
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Mix ricotta cheese, goat cheese and 2 teaspoons of the lemon rind.
- Toast English muffins.
- Spread about 2 tablespoons ricotta mixture on each muffin half. Top evenly with strawberries; drizzle with glaze. Sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon lemon rind, salt and pepper.
Tip: One large lemon will give approximately 3 teaspoons of grated rind.
Tip: Can substitute whipped cream cheese for goat cheese.
Serving Suggestion: Sprinkle with chopped fresh mint leaves!
