This elegant appetizer comes together with minimal fuss. All you have to do is toast some nuts and assemble.
Got kids? This would be a good recipe to delegate to them.
The cheese contrasts beautifully with the sweetness of the jam and the roasted nuts provide a richness of flavor that makes you go 'mmmm.'
- Cheese of your choice: I used brie and a white cheddar
- Reduced Sugar or Sugar Free Jam of your choice: I used E.D. Smith brand which has 6g carb per tablespoon.
- Toasted nuts: I recommend walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts.
Quantities depend on how many appetizers you want to make. You'll want 1tsp of jam and 1 nut per piece of cheese.
1.Toast nuts at 350F for approximately 5 minutes. They will become fragrant when done.
2. If you want to smash the nuts do so, or leave whole. Or mix and match like I did.
3.Slice cheese and top with 1 tsp of jam (2g carb) and then finish with nuts.
