The Long Quiche Goodbye comes out in twelve weeks!
To honor this twelve-week mark, I’ve posted a book trailer on YouTube. Click this link to VIEW TRAILER. I hope you'll take a look at this "tasty morsel" and share with friends. [If you click this link and leave a comment on my website, you'll be entered to win my next newsletter contest.] If you want to pre-order, there's a link on my website for that, as well.
In the meantime, I mention The Long Quiche Goodbye because in the story, Charlotte, the owner of The Cheese Shop, has twin eight-year-old nieces and they are the inspiration for this week's recipe.
Long story short, Charlotte's cousin Matthew needed someplace to stay, so he and the nieces moved in with Charlotte. Charlotte adores the girls and wants to make sure they start off each day with a healthy dose of love and a good meal. Feeding them something they like to eat helps!
Their favorite breakfast includes eggs and Zircles or Crisp Toasts. I've shared my Parmigiano Zircles recipe before on this blog, but not Crisp Toasts. What I love about these little gems is how versatile they are and how easy they are to prepare. They go with breakfast, lunch, dinner, salads, soups, or are tasty all on their own!
And you are the visionary. You get to decide which spice and how much of each spice goes into them.
You'll need a baguette of bread, oil, balsamic vinegar, spices, salt and pepper.
For this batch, I sliced the baguette of bread thin. I set the slices on a cookie tray, then I brushed each piece with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
I seasoned with the twins' favorite spices: rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper.
Then I sprinkled with a generous amount of grated Parmigiano-Regiano. [You can also use shredded Parmesan].
Slide the cookie tray into a preheated 400 degree oven.
Bake 6-10 minutes, depending on your desire of crispiness.
Remove from oven and serve immediately with your favorite meal. They are crunch-in-your-mouth yummy.Don't forget that they make a lovely addition to a cheese platter,
