I love everything about this unique appetizer. The earthy flavour from the camembert, the sweetness of the caramelized onion and the beautifully sliced biltong.
These glorious morsels are what the Italians call a crostini. Which when translated means little toast. So no doubt I had to throw out the pesto and have a go at this amazing appetizer turning into a South African wonder.
Friends I present to you Crostini with Camembert, caramelized onion and lashings of the most amazing biltong.
The flavours work so very well, these make the perfect starter to any occasion. I mean, carbs + biltong? biltong on carbs? Total winning combination.
Also, I really want to know what your favourite appetizers are?
