Lemon-Thyme Crostini

This recipe was served as an appetizer at our 3rd Annual Festivus party this year (oh yes, I have a Festivus party every year). This recipe was easy to make and had few ingredients, you can find that original here.

-1 baguette; thinly sliced
-8 ounces ricotta cheese
-1 lemon; zested
-Freshly cracked black pepper
-8 springs fresh thyme
-Black Hawaiian sea salt; optional

Preheat the oven to 425 (this is to toast the bread)

Mix together the ricotta, lemon zest, salt and pepper.
Spread the ricotta and lemon zest onto the toast.
Top with more seasoning. 
Drizzle with honey.

This appetizer wasn't as lemony as I thought it would be. I would recommend using a different cheese than ricotta because the ricotta overall was pretty bland. I think brie would be a great cheese for this recipe. There's one other Festivus appetizer yet to come, perfect to serve both at a party because they have the same ingredients.
