Roast Beef Crostini with Blue Cheese

Roast Beef Crostini with Blue Cheese

1 Sourdough baguette
Olive oil
8 Large slices of deli roast beef
1/3 C. Blue Cheese
1/3 C. Crème Fraiche
24 Flat leaf parsley leaves

Purchase your favorite sour dough baguette. Cut 24 slices approximately ½ inch thick. Brush each side with olive oil. Lie onto a cookie sheet and turn oven on broil. Place under broiler and toast each side until golden brown. Watch carefully so the do not burn.

In a small mixing bowl add the crème fraise and blue cheese. Mix well until most lumps are gone. Season with a few grinds of fresh ground pepper.

Lay the deli roast beef on a cutting board and cut each slice into thirds.

To assemble:
Lay out the toasted crostini and roll up each slice of roast beef. Lay each rolled piece of roast beef on top of each crostini. Add a dollop of the blue cheese mixture and garnish with a parsley leaf.
