TNT REC: Crostini with Roasted Peppers and Goat Cheese

1 loaf French baguette
2 red and 2 yellow bell peppers, or 1 15-oz. jar roasted peppers
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. dried oregano, crumbled
cup red wine vinegar
cup extra virgin olive oil
8 oz. goat cheese

Slice baguette on a diagonal into -inch slices. Toast in a 350 degree oven till lightly browned. Cool on wire racks and set aside.

Preheat broiler on high. Halve, core, and seed peppers; flatten with your hand. Broil 3 inches away from broiler flame on cookie sheet for 8 minutes, until skin is charred black. Remove from oven and place in a plastic bag for 15 minutes to steam; pull off skin.

Cut peppers into 2-inch x -inch strips and place in a baking dish or other wide, flat dish. Sprinkle garlic, oregano, vinegar and olive oil evenly over peppers. Set aside to marinate for 2-3 hours.

Stir peppers to mix up the colors. Spread a thin layer of goat cheese on baguette slices. Top with peppers.

I make something similar but with red onion and basil, sometimes prosciutto and a tad balsamic.

Mmm, this sounds wonderful. I bet it'd be great with fresh oregano instead of dried. DH and I are having our monthly "wine and apps weekend" this weekend, and this may just end up on my to-try list.

It probably would be good - I like the intense flavor of dried oregano, although there aren't many herbs I use dry. Hope you like it

Hey, Suz, it's *healthy*! Peppers are full of vitamin C and vitamin A, goat cheese is loaded with calcium and protein, olive oil is good for your heart - the bread is just a holder for everything

Yep - just slice the bread thinner and you can find seeded wheat baguettes - I even found a flax seed and bran baguette - it's wonderful!
