Herb Toasted Croustades with Basil Goat Cheese and Sundried Tomatoes
Here is another great appetizer idea!!! Try Herb toasted croustades with basil scented goat cheese and sundried tomatoes. They are simple to make and very attractive. We serve them at many of our parties and guests really like them. Good luck!!
Long Thin Baguette
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
log Goat Cheese (chevre)
Coarsely Ground Pepper
1 Roasted Red Pepper or Sundried tomatoes
Slice the baguette into thin slices (about 1/2 inch). Mix chopped Herbs with 1/2 cup of olive oil. You can do this step a day or two before and set aside so the herbs infuse the oil.Brush the bread with the herb/olive oil mixture and place on a baking sheet.Bake in oven at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden.
In a small bowl mix the goat cheese with chopped basil and s&p to taste.Place in fridge until the goat cheese becomes somewhat firm.
Form the goat cheese into desired shape, place on croustade and top with a roasted red pepper slice or sundried tomato. Plate and serve
