Blueberry Ricotta Bruschetta

Appetizers & Side Dishes

Blueberry ricotta bruschetta is the perfect simple, yet fancy appetizer for any occasion! Made with on french bread with blueberries, ricotta, honey, and lemon zest, each bite is delicious!

When it comes to appetizers, I love making something that looks a little fancy but it actually super simple to make like this blueberry ricotta bruschetta! They come together quickly and would be the perfect addition to your Christmas or New Years Eve line up.

Honey and lemon zest perfectly complement the flavors of blueberry and ricotta and I love that they’re bite sized!

Blueberries are a fridge and freezer staple of mine. I always have them on hand for snacking, adding to things like smoothie and oatmeal or using in a main dish or appetizer like this one! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I love to add more nutrition to baked goods and meals and snacks in a variety of ways that is fun and easy. Blueberries definitely help me do just that!

Blueberries are a good source of 4 essential nutrients — fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese, plus phytonutrients called polyphenols. Frozen contains just as much nutrition as fresh!

Blueberry ricotta bruschetta makes for a simple and delicious holiday appetizer! Made with just a few simple ingredients, you’ll love how easy they are to make! 
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 18 – 20 servings


  • 1 French bread baguette
  • 1 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup whole milk or part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • zest of a lemon


  • Preheat the oven 300 degrees F. Slice the bread, drizzle slices with a little olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 10 minutes until lightly toasted. 
  • While the bread is baking, add the blueberries and maple syrup to a small saucepan over medium to low heat. Stir occasionally as blueberries begin to bubble and you start to see juices. No need to mash any of the blueberries while cooking because you want them to stay intact. Remove from heat.
  • Use a small spatula to spread ricotta on the toasted bread. Spoon 3-4 blueberries on top of each.
  • Drizzle honey and sprinkle lemon zest over the top of all of the bruschetta bites and enjoy!
