Gorgonzola ToastsFrom krumkake 9 years ago
- 1 loaf french baguette, cut into 1/3” slices shopping list
- garlic cloves, optional shopping list
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted (see instructions below) shopping list
- 2 tablespoons softened butter shopping list
- ¼ pound of a good, creamy gorgonzola or blue cheese (if you can get your hands on Maytag blue cheese, it is the best I've ever had) shopping list
How to make it
- To toast pine nuts, put them in a hot skillet and watch closely, shaking the pan often, until nuts are browned just a bit.
- Toast bread slices over hot grill, or on a baking sheet in a 450 degree oven, until just lightly toasted.
- If you are a garlic lover, you can rub each piece of toasted bread with a cut clove of garlic when the bread is hot from the oven…the garlic flavor from the cut clove will “cling” to the bread, giving it a wonderful flavor!
- Blend together butter and cheese.
- Stir in cooled pine nuts.
- Spread one side of each bread slice with the cheese spread, and place slices on baking sheet.
- Put under broiler JUST BRIEFLY, until cheese melts a bit and bread is warmed.
- You can do all the prep ahead of time, and then at serving time just put spread on toasts and place under the broiler.
