Sweet Pepper Crostini

I made a loaf of French bread the other day and since we had some left over (and it's never quite as good the second day) I  decided to make some crostini with it.  Crostini means little toasts and can be topped with just about anything.  
I had a bag of delicious baby sweet peppers in the house and sliced them up for my topping. I decided to top these with some feta because I knew the sweet peppers would go well with this salty cheese. Topped them with some fresh herbs from the garden and this easy simple snack was ready.

I know - you are all admiring my knife skills right?  You are thinking, "check out the amazing thin and uniform slices of bread - Danielle really rocks!"  Well thank you very much but I have a confession - my knife skills are not so good.  Hubby's on the other hand- totally rock (as you can see.)

Ingredients:
Bread (I used French Bread) sliced
2 tablespoons of olive oil per 6-8 slices of bread
Sliced sweet peppers
Crumbled Feta
a few Parsley sprigs

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375
Arrange the bread slices on a cookie sheet and brush them with the olive oil.  Bake them until they are lightly golden and begin to crisp, about 15 minutes.
Top with the cheese and put back in the oven until the cheese melts, I opted to only melt slightly because my bread was getting to crisp - you can brown and melt to your liking.
Sprinkle the herbs on top and enjoy!


Last year at this time I made a Better Than Cake 

Two years ago I made Thai Curried fish 

And three years ago the kids and I made Rockstars
