Ricotta Bruschetta with Truffle Honey Recipe


Sweet as Honey

We can thank bees for supplying us with honey, a sweet and sticky substance that has earned its place as a pantry staple with a rich, distinct flavor and wide range of uses. The following dishes from local restaurants showcase the versatility of this ingredient and demonstrate how a drizzle of honey is so often the perfect finishing touch.

For the truffle honey:

  • 16 oz. local honey
  • 1 Tbsp. white truffle oil
  • 2 Tbsp. minced black truffle pieces
  • Pinch of salt

For the ricotta bruschetta:

  • 24 oz. hand-dipped, whole milk ricotta cheese (can sub regular ricotta cheese)
  • 2-4 oz. heavy whipping cream
  • 1-2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. white pepper
  • 1 loaf Niedlov's country loaf, or good quality sourdough bread, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • ¼ cup fresh-picked thyme leaves (remove all thick stems)


  • To make the truffle honey, whisk altogether in a bowl at least one day before needed, so that the flavors meld nicely.
  • To create the ricotta spread, drain off any extra whey from the ricotta and then place the ricotta in a bowl and slowly stir in cream until smooth and spreadable. Start with the smaller amount of cream, as you may not need all of it.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste and reserve. 
  • Grill bread or toast in a cast iron skillet. Once warmed and toasted, rub the bread with the garlic cloves, and then slice each piece of grilled bread in half.
  • Cover with the ricotta spread, drizzle with ½ cup truffle honey, and top with thyme leaves. Enjoy!
