It probably would have been ideal if I would have posted this before Christmas, since it definitely falls into the category of a “festive” appetizer…but, hey, there’s still time before New Year’s! Cutting the naan into star shapes is totally optional, of course.
Cranberry, Goat Cheese & Roasted Garlic Naan Toasts
1/2 cup of whole berry cranberry sauce
5-6 oz. goat cheese
6 large cloves of garlic
4 pieces of naan bread
olive oil, for brushing
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wrap your garlic cloves in aluminum foil and bake in the oven for about 25 minutes, until quite soft.
If not using cookie cutters, cut your naan bread into roughly 6 wedges per piece. Cut two pieces of naan on top of each other to ensure that you will have top and bottom pieces that match. Put pieces on cookie sheets, brush with olive oil and put into oven at 400 degrees.
Allow to bake for about 5-10 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.
Now you’re ready to assemble.
Squeeze garlic cloves out of skins. Spread a little bit of the roasted garlic (about 1/2 a clove) onto the toast, then top with goat cheese and a teaspoon or so of cranberry sauce. Press a similarly-sized naan toast on top to make a little sandwich. Repeat.
