Bring the fabulous flavors of BLT sandwiches to an appealing appetizer that's ready in just 30 minutes!
cup shredded Swiss cheese (2 oz)
cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
medium green onions, thinly sliced (2 tablespoons)
slices (1/4 inch thick) baguette French bread
slices refrigerated fully cooked bacon (from 2.1-oz package), cut in half
cup finely shredded iceberg lettuce
cherry tomatoes, each cut into 3 slices
Heat oven to 375°F. In small bowl, mix cheese, mayonnaise and onions. Spread about 1 teaspoon cheese mixture on each bread slice; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Top each with half slice of bacon.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges of bread are golden brown and cheese is melted.
Garnish each crostini with lettuce and tomato slice.
Crostini are simply small, thin slices of toasted bread that are brushed with olive oil. For extra flavor, try rubbing these crostini with garlic cloves before spreading them with the cheese mixture.
Look for bags of shredded lettuce in the produce section of your supermarket. Or, you can use small pieces of torn leaf lettuce instead of the shredded lettuce.
