For a change from the usual toasted tomato appetizer, try these baked bites. If you like, slice the baguette at an angle instead of making a straight cut.

"Love this recipe!!! Found it while going through my grandmother's Taste of Home magazine a few years ago. It's a huge hit at holiday parties...you must make a lot because they go quickly!! I drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil on each crostini before putting them into the oven, gives it an added tasty little crunch."
