These little toasts can be served by themselves as appetizers or sometimes I like to serve them as croutons on salad.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 French baguette, cut into 1/3 inch thick slices
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Brush one side of each slice of bread with melted butter, and place butter side up on a baking sheet. Bake for 7 minutes, or until lightly toasted.
In a small bowl, stir together the blue cheese, softened butter, salt and pepper. Spread this mixture over the tops of the toasted bread slices, then sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
Bake for 6 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the topping is melted and bubbly. Arrange on a serving tray and garnish with chopped parlsley.
