Steak Crostinis With Horseradish Ricotta

Steak Crostinis are an easy appetizer that you can make from leftover steak, and bread. Seriously. A mix of ricotta cheese with horseradish, a drizzle of balsamic honey glaze and a few pomegranate arils, and this is the perfect bite!

This recipe for steak crostinis came about when Bruce made the most amazing rare filets for dinner one weekend. We had leftover steak. He happened to also make French baguettes the next day. We had some pomegranates, ricotta, and horseradish, so I went to town! We always have balsamic vinegar and honey on hand. We are so going to add steak crostinis to our next party!

We used leftover filet mignon to make these steak crostinis, but you can by shaved beef from the deli, if you are in a time pinch, and want to put these together fast! If you prefer crostinis with salmon, check out this Smoked Salmon Crostini Appetizer from Julia at My Dayly Kitchen.
