  • 1 large baguette, cut into ½ inch slices
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil

  • 4 oz package of goats cheese

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Using a pastry brush to lightly brush both sides of your baguette slices with olive oil. Arrange on a baking sheet and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake for 6-8 minutes until slightly golden and crisp (not crunchy).
  • Take the crostinis out of the oven and allow to cool.
