Goat Cheese and Honey Bruschetta with Toasted Almonds

 What has slimed Sophia's already messy apron today? Probably honey....

A note from Sophia: Danielle tells me this one is a little blend of creamy-salty-sweet. I wish I could taste it because it’s hard to imagine what it would taste like. But unfortunately, vampires can't experience such delightful pleasures of life as this.

 Goat Cheese and Honey Bruschetta with Toasted Almonds

You’ll need:

1 French baguette sliced

Goat cheese (could also use Brie for variation)

Sliced almonds


Dried basil


Slice baguette into thick slices and toast lightly. Spread each one with a generous amount of goat cheese. Without any cooking oil, toast almonds in a hot pan until slightly browned. Stir them constantly because they tend to burn easily if not carefully watched. Sprinkle almonds over the cheese. Drizzle honey over the top and sprinkle with dried basil, crushing it between your fingers as you go.
