Crostini/bruschetta. Toast the baguette slices. Offer roasted red pepper, goat cheese, capers. Or olive tapenade and goat cheese. Or roasted tomato pesto and goat cheese and capers. Or tomato bruschetta topping from Costco. Or foie gras with pear confiture. Caramelized onions with goat cheese.

This is my hands-down favorite:

Crab & Artichoke Crostini

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

One 6-ounce can crabmeat
One 15-ounce can artichoke hearts, drained & chopped
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons sour cream
Ground cayenne pepper to taste
Paprika (optional)
Approx. 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
Six 1" thick diagonal slices of an Italian or French baguette

Mix first 4 ingredients together, along with a few dashes of cayenne pepper to taste. Stir in one cup of grated Parmesan.

Spread mixture thickly on top of slices of bread, top with additional cup of Parmesan cheese, & sprinkle lightly with a little additional cayenne pepper, or regular paprika.

Bake in oven for approx. 15 minutes or until heated through. If you prefer a browner topping, you can broil the pieces briefly.

Serve as an appetizer, or as a light supper along with a green salad.

Bruschetta is a delicious and easy way to go. We had some with just chopped tomatoes, garlic and basil on Sunday. So delicious!

I just made a "Greek Crostini" the other day with baguette.

It was basically a homemade hummus (or storebought) on slightly toasted baguette, topped with a mixture of (1 T. olive oil, 2 T. finely chopped celery and 8 large pitted green olives seasoned w/ salt and pepper). Just sprinkle the mixture on top of the hummus and drizzle w/ olive oil. Top with fresh ground pepper. I suppose you could add some sprinkled feta too.

Served it to my son's teachers for a luncheon and had good feedback.
