(Crostini With Teleme, Oil & Salt)

INGREDIENTS

4 Slices Bread - Crusty & Italian
4 Slices Teleme cheese
1/4 Cup Extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbl. Salt - Kosher

PREPARATION

Toast the bread on both sides in a 475 degree oven, or under the broiler. Coat each slice lightly with olive oil. (Use a brush or your fingers). Place a slice of Teleme cheese on each slice of bread.

Place in a 475 degree oven for 3-4 minutes.

Remove from oven and drizzle olive oil onto each crostini. Salt each with the Kosher salt. Serve.

NOTE:

Teleme is a soft cheese found in California.  If not available to you, a fresh mozzarella or another soft, mild, creamy cheese can be used.  The mild cheese is offset in this recipe by the large grains of Kosher salt.
