Roasted Red Pepper Blue Cheese Canapés

Roasted Red Pepper Blue Cheese Canapés

Makes: 24 canapés

2 small baguettes, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 red peppers, sliced

8 ounces of blue cheese, crumbled

salt + pepper

fresh parsley, optional

Preheat oven to 375°. On a baking sheet, spread out parchment paper and arrange red pepper slices. Sprinkle the slices with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Roast in preheated oven on top rack for about 45 minutes or till slices are beginning to blacken. Set slices aside.

When you are ready to assemble the canapés and serve, arrange the baguette slices on a cookie sheet and pile the roasted peppers and blue cheese on each piece. Put them in the oven under the low broiler for 2-3 minutes just until the blue cheese melts. You can sprinkle with parsley and fresh black pepper, but half the time I forget to do that and they are still amazing. Serve hot from the oven and enjoy!
