Assorted Baguette Hors D'oeuvres

These are some quick and easy ways to turn a simple baguette into delicious hors d'oeuvres!
For each of these ideas slice the baguette into small pieces and toast lightly in the oven. Then pile on the following toppings!

Tomato and Basil Bruschetta

You'll Need -

6 Plum Tomatoes
2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 Tsp Balsamic Vinegar
6 Fresh Basil Leaves (chopped)
1/4 Cup Onion (red or while, chopped)
Salt & Pepper

Dice the tomatoes as small as you can and place in a mixing bowl, add freshly minced garlic, onion and basil and stir to combine. Drizzle in the EVOO and balsamic vinegar and season to taste with salt & pepper. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and spoon mixture onto the toasted bread

Fresh Basil Pesto

You'll Need -

2 Cups Fresh Basil Leaves
1/2 Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan-Reggiano
1/2 Cup EVOO
1/3 Cup Pine Nuts
3 Garlic Cloves (minced)
Salt & Pepper

Add basil and pine nuts in a food processor and pulse a few times. Add the garlic, pulse a few times more. Slowly add the olive oil in a constant stream while the food processor is on. Stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula. Add the grated cheese and pulse again until blended. Add Salt & Pepper to taste.
First coat the toasted baguette slices with a little bit of cream cheese and then add a little bit of the pesto spread on top!

Cheese and Veggies

This one is super easy! Coat the toasted baguette slices with your favorite soft cheese and top with either a tomato or cucumber slice!
I really like using herbed goat cheese or laughing cow cheese wedges (awesome light cheeses!), or Boursin and Alouette both make a variety of spreadable cheeses!
