photo (12)

This installment of cheese o’clock is the exceptional salivate-r that is the peach blue cheese crostini.   Just be warned: every single bite may be followed by a maniacal laugh of delight and surprise- so if you’re on the shy side, you might want to eat the first few solo.


1 baguette,  cut into 1/2 inch diagonal slices
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
2 peaches (ripe but firm), sliced
8 oz. blue cheese
2 tbsp honey


1. Preheat oven 400 degrees

2. Place baguette slices on a baking sheet- cover in aluminum foil or parchment paper to avoid the mess.  Lightly pour olive oil over bread slices.

3.  Bake for 5 minutes, or until the toasts are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and rub each toast with the raw garlic clove. Arrange the peach wedges over the bread. Divide the cheese over the peaches and place back in the oven for another 5 to 7 minutes. Remove and drizzle honey over crostinis.  Serve immediately.
