Ingredients

12 (1/2-inch thick) slices baguette-style French bread

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh chives or green onions

Dash ground red pepper

1/4 cup finely chopped red and/or yellow bell pepper  

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley

 

 *Substitute 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Spread 1 side of bread slices with 1 tablespoon butter. Place onto ungreased baking sheet, buttered-side up. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool slightly.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine remaining butter, blue cheese, chives and ground red pepper in bowl; mix well.

  4. STEP 4

    Turn bread slices over. Spread unbuttered sides evenly with blue cheese mixture; sprinkle with bell pepper. Bake 5-6 minutes or until cheese mixture begins to melt. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve warm.

Tip #1

For easy entertaining, prepare toasted bread slices and cheese mixture early in the day of your get-together. Store toasted bread slices in a tightly covered container at room temperature and cheese mixture covered in the refrigerator. When ready to prepare appetizers, let cheese mixture come to room temperature for easier spreading.
