What’s in the Kitchen – Baguette Bites


We recently made our monthly shopping trip and we came home exhausted.  It was a full day, we had a huge lunch later in the afternoon and one of the last things I wanted to figure out was dinner.


So I assessed all the goodies we had come home with and decided to make a variation of “baguette bites” (so I am calling them ;))…


They were whipped up in less than 15 minutes and could be made in a number of fun and tasty ways. I made three versions: Goat Cheese/Peach, Caprese, and Plain. Here is what I did and here is what I used…baquettebites5


  • 1 Long Baguette (sliced about 3/4 inch)
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Goat Cheese
  • 2 Small Peaches (largely diced)
  • Honey for drizzling
  • Fresh Mozzarella (thin slices for melting)
  • 1 Large Tomato (sliced and then sliced again in half)
  • About 5 Fresh Basil Leaves (thinly sliced)
  • Balsamic Glaze


  • Preheat the oven at 300 degrees…
  • Lay out your baguette slices on a cookie sheet.
  • Drizzle some oil and then sprinkle some salt and pepper on your baguette slices.
  • Layer some mozzarella slices on 1/3 of the bread slices.
  • Set the bread into the oven and toast for about 5 minutes, but watch carefully as this time can vary according to preference and ovens…
  • Pull the bread out once golden and slightly crisp (some may be eaten as is…)


For the Goat Cheese/Peach

  • Spread some goat cheese on another third of the slices while the bread is still warm.
  • Then sprinkle the diced peaches and drizzle with honey


For the Caprese

  • Lay out a half slice of tomato on each mozzarella toast
  • Sprinkle the thin cut basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze


Like I said this could also be done with prosciutto or ham and is perfect for a last minute meal or an easy appetizer. The kids ate this up and asked we make it for dinner more often, which is always a fun reaction when you make a dinner at the spur of the moment.

I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you already do this or try it out! Have great day friends!
