Happy New Year – 2017!


Here’s a quick and easy appetizer recipe for celebrating the new year right. French Dijon mustard adds just the right amount of spice to this rich, creamy spread. Wash it down with a glass (or two) of champagne and drink to Auld Lang Syne. 

Bruschetta with Dijon and Cream Cheese Spread

4 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons fresh basil (chopped)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Fresh ground black pepper to taste
1 baguette
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 small leaves of fresh basil (for garnish)

Mix cheese, basil, and mustard in a small bowl. Season with pepper to taste. Set aside.

Cut 2 to 3 slices from the baguette. Brush one side of each slice with olive oil. Broil in the oven, olive oil side up, for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasty. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute or two. Spread cheese mixture on the toasted side of each baguette slice. Garnish with a small leaf of fresh basil if desired.
