A few easy ingredients on toasted French bread spells yum for a quick-fix potluck or picnic appetizer.
loaf French bread, cut into thirty 1/4- to 1/2-inch slices
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
cup soft cream cheese with roasted garlic
ounces thinly sliced cooked deli roast beef
teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
roma (plum) tomatoes, thinly sliced
medium green onions, sliced (1/2 cup)
Heat oven to 375ºF. Brush both sides of bread slices with oil. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 5 minutes or until crisp. Cool 5 minutes.
Spread cream cheese over each slice. Top with beef; sprinkle with pepper. Top each with tomato slice and onions.
The bread can be toasted up to a day ahead of time. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
Use sliced smoked turkey breast instead of the roast beef.
Any savory-flavored cream cheese, such as cream cheese with chives and onions, can be used in place of the roasted garlic cream cheese.
Sprinkle drained capers over the cream cheese.
