Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe came from my "Italian Farmhouse Cookbook" by Susan Herrmann Loomis. I love gorgonzola, I love goat cheese. I tried this recipe when I first got this cookbook and was never able to move away from it. For me, the purpose of this cookbook IS this recipe! (OK, I admit it, I also love easy!)

Ingredients You'll Need

6 oz fresh, soft goat cheese ... though I've been known to use feta.
2 oz Gorgonzola
!/3 cup heavy (whipping) cream ... though I've been known to use milk.
1 baguette - either french or talian sour dough bread
1 small bunch fresh chives for garnish (optional)
Coarsely ground black pepper for garnish (optional)



Thinly slice (1/2 inch) baguette

Put bread under broiler for 1 minute on each side until crisp and golden.

Rub garlic clove on the toasts.

Drizzle olive oil on the toasts

Cheese Blend:

Mix cheeses with cream in a small bowl with a wooden spoon until smooth.

Thickly spread the mixture on toasts.

Top with chives and/or (or not) freshly ground black pepper.

Note: the cheese mixture will keep in the refrigerator for a few days, and the crostini can be prepped in advance, so this can be a really quick fix first course, and if served with an italian wine and fresh veg from your garden (cherry tomatoes, eggplant, green beans, anyone?), you, too, may never get to the next course!
