Posted in Fruit, Sara, Small Bites
So often appetizers are salty and fattening.  Definitely nothing wrong with that, but this is a nice change of pace!  It would be a great addition to a brunch spread, or as finger food for a baby or wedding shower.

It’s basically a twist on a classic bruschetta.  This version involves a medley of fresh fruit that sits on top of bite-sized cinnamon toast and is then drizzled with a heavenly sour cream sauce flavored with honey and orange.

Let’s get started.  You can use any fruit you like.  I pick mostly based on color and then what’s in season or on sale.  In this case, I’m going with strawberries, mango, and kiwi (click that link for my tip on how to cut a kiwi fruit!)

You’ll want all of your fruit chopped in a small dice, and in similar sized pieces.  You can definitely do the chopping in advance; just keep the fruit covered, and in the fridge.

You can make the sauce ahead of time too.  And let me tell you, it’s amazing what just 3 ingredients can do here.  You’ll mix sour cream, honey, and orange zest.  If you need any extra moisture to get the consistency you want, just add a little of the juice from the orange.  That can be covered and stored in the fridge as well.

For the bread, you’ll want to use either a baguette or a thin french bread loaf.  I can always find both at my local grocery store.  The difference in size is shown below; the French bread (at least where I buy it) tends to be a little bit larger, and is usually a bit softer and fluffier.  The baguette toasts up a little crispier.  They both work just fine.

Slice your loaf into about 1/2 inch slices or a little thinner.

Place them in a single layer on a baking sheet (I always line mine with foil for easy clean up!) and brush the tops with melted butter.

Next you’ll sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar.  See where we’re going here?  Mini cinnamon toast!

After they’ve toasted in the oven and cooled to room temp, you’ll spoon the fruit mixture on each one.

Then give them a drizzle of the yummy sour cream sauce and you’re done!  Fresh, beautiful, and absolutely heavenly.

    I just made these last wed and posted about it on my blog. I got the idea from Annie's Eats and this recipe is sooooo good! The only difference is she suggested using vanilla yogurt. I will have to try it with the sour cream mixture. YUM YUM

    This looks so yummy. I wanted to vote but I am from Canada so I am not allowed. :( We also don't have this brand of sour cream. Do you think a greek yogurt might work well as a replacement?

    made this for easter brunch as well, and it was a hit! … we had six adults and had plenty of leftover, so I'd probably cut up a little less fruit next time.

    loved the sauce! i did add a tiny splash of OJ in it – and I would totally sub this topping on orange rolls rather than a sugar based icing – to cut the sweet a little. loved it!

    I made this for a girl's night last night and it was a HUGE hit!!! Delic. I ate fourteen of them, I just couldn't help myself. :)

    I made this for a friend's wedding shower, and everybody went CRAZY for it. The combination of the cinnamon sugar, fruit, and sour cream sauce is divine, and they're just so pretty on a platter. And the great thing is, it looks so much more difficult than it actually is. Love it!

    We had these tonight with feta scrambled eggs. They were beautiful,seriously yummy, and a good pairing with the salty eggs. Easy too, because I could do most of it ahead of time. Thanks so much!

    A friend of mine brought these to a party a few years ago, and she referred me to your site for the first time. Now it is the first place I look for new recipe ideas! Then, I made them for a potluck and one of my friends said that she felt like she had just stepped into the “orgasmatron” when she ate them. You girls are really that good! Thanks!
