peachcrostiniAdapted from Real Simple

1 baguette, sliced in 24 slices
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup chutney, peach, fig, mango or your favorite flavor
4 ounces good quality, pungent blue cheese

Heat oven to 400°F. Place bread slices on a baking sheet and brush both sides of the bread with oil. Bake until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side (this can be made up to two days ahead and kept in an airtight container).

Dividing evenly, spread 3/4 cup chutney on crostini. Top each slice with 4 ounces thinly sliced blue cheese.
