Smoked-Almond Cheese Toasts
I created my recipe for appetizer toasts while planning the menu for a friend's bridal luncheon. Smoked almonds add a special touch to the chunky cheese spread.—Laura Murphy, Columbus, Mississippi

- 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- 3/4 cup chopped smoked almonds

- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 French bread baguette (10-1/2 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch slices

Editor’s Note: This recipe was tested with sun-dried tomatoes that are ready-to-use without soaking. When using other sun-dried tomatoes that are not oil-packed, cover with boiling water and let stand until soft. Drain before using.
