These little toasts can be served by themselves as appetizers or sometimes I like to serve them as croutons on salad.

I tweaked this just a bit to help decrease the fat and calories: did not use butter when browning the first side and instead of mixing the blue cheese into softened butter I used low-fat mayo (I'm sure you could even use non-fat but low-fat is what I had); you just need to make sure the cheese is finely crumbled so that it mixes in well with the mayo. I also used pecans and mixed them into the spread (but if making the spread ahead of time would not do this until right before using). And I added just a dash of cayenne to make the flavors pop! I like to serve these with a salad of baby mixed greens with pears pecans and goat or feta cheese with the Maple Balsamic dressing from this site. Yummm - better than a 5-star restaurant! Read More

Everyone loved this just don't cook it too long in the oven - I kept waiting for mine to get real bubbly and the toast was too toasty. We like our toast chewy and soft next time I'd take it out sooner. Read More

Great recipe idea! I did make some changes. I only made two toasts (making lunch for myself) and omitted most of the butter, I did spread each slice thinly with butter. Then I put on some blue cheese, and then pine nuts instead of walnuts. Cooked for about 9 minutes at 400. Came out great! Will have to try walnuts next time. Chives would be good added too. Read More

Yum! Fabulous and SO simple. I left out the butter mixed in with the cheese in a feeble attempt to cut calories. I just love bleu cheese and walnuts together...served this with the pear and roquefort salad and beef burgundy found here as well. Thanks for sharing...my mouth is watering just thinking about them!

These were good too much butter though. And I would have liked something extra like some fresh garlic or some taragon or some other fresh herb. Read More
