Goat Cheese Croutons

These tasty croutons will add an extra crunch to any salad or atop a tangy soup. Canola oil’s high heat tolerance is a good match for oven-toasting the bread.

Goat Cheese Croutons

Ingredients

  • canola oil cooking spray
  • 4 slices (1/4-inch/0.6-cm thick) baguette
  • 2 tsp canola oil 10 mL
  • 1 log (4 oz/125 g) fresh goat cheese
  • 1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper 2 mL

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Spray baking sheet with canola oil cooking spray. Brush baguette slices on both sides with canola oil. Place on baking sheet and cook until crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  • 2. Slice goat cheese into four evenly-sized rounds. Place one round on each crouton and sprinkle with black pepper. Place back in oven and bake until cheese is just heated through, about 5 minutes
