Ingredients
  

  • 4 oz soft cream cheese
  • 4 oz soft fresh goat cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons of grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 French-bread baguette cut into thin slices - about 25-30 slices
  • 12 oz thinly sliced smoked salmon
  • Fresh Dill or Capers for garnish

Instructions
 

  • Both cream cheese goat cheese must be soft to mix.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Mix cream cheese and goat cheese, parsley, thyme, lemon zest, and black pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Place the baguette and slice along a diagonal into 1/4 inch slices using a serrated knife using a cutting board.
  • With a pastry brush, brush the oil over both sides of bread slices. Arrange bread in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the slices until just crisp, about 5 minutes on each side. Remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.

Assemble smoked salmon and cheese crostini:

  • Spread the cheese and herbs mixture over the toasts. Top with the smoked salmon, trimming to fit. Garnish with fresh dill or capers and serve immediately.

Notes

  • When slicing the French Baguette make the slices no thicker than 1/4 inch. You want the toasts to be crunchy but not difficult to bite through when served.
  • Adding salt is not necessary as the smoked salmon is a bit on the salty side. 
  • Use a pastry brush to brush the oil on the slices. Brush both sides and do not over toast the bread.
  • Use the cutting board to stabilize the bread when slicing it.
  • A serrated knife is ideal to slice French Baguettes.
  • A baking sheet pan is best to toast the slices.
