How to Make It

Preheat oven to 425°. Toss together first 6 ingredients. Arrange grapes in a single layer in a small roasting pan; bake 15 to 20 minutes or until grapes wilt and liquid forms a thin syrup. Remove from oven. Increase oven temperature to broil with oven rack 7 inches from heat. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet. Stir together butter and cheese, and spread evenly over bread slices. Broil 2 to 3 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Spoon grape mixture over toasted bread, and sprinkle with pecans.

Tomatoes work too!

My sister made these with cherry tomatoes instead of red grapes and they were fabulous!  I want to try the grape version too!

Perfect appetizer

Delicious and easy to make! I made this for a baby shower and got lots of requests for the recipe. Elegant and tasty. I think this is at its best when warm from the oven, but we served them room temp and all loved the taste.

Fabulous - It comes together quickly, after cutting the grapes in half. Cocktail party worthy -This is going on repeat!
