French baguettes are brushed with a garlic-infused olive oil and topped with a slice of Brie cheese. A few minutes under the broiler creates a quick and delicious appetizer.
I’m a little sad now that football season is over. It’s not that I care who wins or loses. Except that a Chargers loss definitely changes the atmosphere in our home.
No, I miss the food. Football season is a perfect excuse for me to bust out the snacks. I’m a big snacker. I’m coming to realize that — and make peace with it.
I also have a daily shredding session with Jillian. That helps me make peace with my snack habit. And allows me to indulge in these fabulous Garlic Brie Toasts.
They are similar to my Garlic Brie Bread, but easier to make and quicker to get from counter to oven to table.
French baguettes are brushed with a garlic-infused olive oil and topped with a slice of Brie cheese. Broil for about five minutes and you have a lovely appetizer or a great side dish to dip into soup.
