Ingredients

Salt and pepper

24 (1/2-inch-thick) slices baguette bread

3 tablespoons olive oil

4 ounces soft fresh goat cheese

1/4 cup whole milk ricotta cheese

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil leaves

2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel

Directions

  1. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the bread slices. Grill the bread until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
