When you need a quick canapé or sweet and savory starter, try this delectable five-ingredient recipe.
loaf (16 inch) baguette French bread, cut diagonally into 22 (3/4 inch) slices
container (5 oz) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
bag (6 oz) dried apricots, chopped (about 1 cup)
cup roasted almonds, chopped
Set oven control to broil. Place bread slices on broiler pan or cookie sheet. Broil with tops 3 to 4 inches from heat 1 minute. Turn slices over; broil 1 minute longer.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix cheese, apricots and almonds. Top each slice of toasted bread with about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture. Broil 20 to 30 seconds or until cheese is soft. Drizzle with honey.
This brunch bruschetta invites a fun drink pairing such as a mimosa.
Try flavored roasted almonds, such as vanilla bean, in place of plain roasted almonds. Blue cheese can be used in place of the Gorgonzola.
