Some days a freshly toasted slice of bread is all I need to satisfy my hunger. The crunch, the smell, the homey feeling fills my belly with love. There’s not much to do to a piece of toast to improve it in my book.
But I am a BIG lover of cheese, and I just can’t resist cheese toast. I thought this might be a nice upgrade on the simplicity of cheese toast. I could probably call this Crostini, and then you’d think it was a whole lot fancier than it is. That’s the reality. This is super easy and tastes fantastic and fancy. I don’t think great tasting food has to be complicated to be impressive.
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
2 teaspoons of sliced green onions
1 6-inch sandwich roll
1. Heat the oven (or toaster oven) to 450 degrees.
2. In a small bowl, mix with the back of a fork the butter, cheese, pepper and green onions.
2. Slice the roll into 6 1/2-inch slices. Divide and spread the cheese mixture on each peice of bread.
3. Cook these on a baking sheet in the oven (or toaster oven if you like) for 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and bread is starting to brown.
This is a super easy and impressive appetizer. Or serve alongside a salad or a soup too.
