Goat Cheese-Tomato Crostini

Our farmers market has a goat cheese farmer who participates. His fresh chèvre is fantastic! I love the smoked goat cheese best; my second favorite is the tomato-basil. Today we received a round of the tomato-basil in our baskets. I decided to pair the goat cheese with fresh tomatoes in a tasty appetizer. This is so easy and is perfect for any-size crowd. Enjoy!

Goat Cheese-Tomato Crostini
Thinly sliced French bread
Olive oil
Tomato-basil goat cheese (You can substitute plain goat cheese.)
1 tomato, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper

1. Place bread slices on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Drizzle bread with olive oil.
2. Bake at 350° for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden.
3. Spread goat cheese on one side of bread slices. Top with thinly sliced tomato, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4. Bake at 350° for 2 to 3 more minutes.
