I found this recipe less than a week ago and have already made it twice. It is quick and easy, but it tastes delicious, maybe even gourmet! The way the gorgonzola blends with the sweet roma tomatoes and the spice of green onion and parsley, YUM!
I wanted something different than my normal "mom's cheese-ball" appetizer when my in-laws visited this past weekend. It ended up being a hit! I could tell I should have made more as we were all arguing about who the last two slices belonged to.
Last night I made this again, because they were THAT good.
and my confession...my husband and I ate all 12 slices by ourselves. GULP.
I tossed in some chopped yellow bell peppers and it added some great color and flavor. So, I recommend having some fun with this recipe and trying different peppers or tomatoes.
12 slices baguette-style french bread, cut 1/2 inch thick
3 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup gorgonzola crumbles
1 tsp green onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup roma tomatoes, chopped
1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. Spread one side of bread slices with 2 tbsp butter. Place onto lined baking sheet buttered side up. Bake for 8 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Cool slightly.
In small bowl combine 1 tbsp butter, gorgonzola, and green onion and mix well. Turn cooled bread over (buttered side down) and spread with cheese mixture. Sprinkle with tomatoes and bake for 6 minutes or until cheese is slightly melted. Sprinkle with parsley and serve warm.
Let me know how all your variations turn out!
