Cherry Hot Pepper Bruschetta Recipe

Red, white, and bleu:)  Summer cherries make my mouth salivate, and this recipe is perfect as a quick appetizer or a snack.  The hot pepper jam adds a nice kick to the cherries.  If you would prefer a sweeter version of this recipe, without the kick, then try our Strawberry or Cherry Butters.

Who says you have to save this for guests?  Treat yourselves to these little morsels...go ahead, it's ok:)

Ingredients

Preparation

Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices and set aside.  Turn the grill on to high, allowing the grill to heat up for 5 minutes, then turn grill down to low.  Place baguette slices on grill and brown for a few minutes on each side. The bread will be slightly toasted on each side but yet soft in the middle...a perfect base for the bruschetta mixture.

Doesn't that look pretty?  Next, pit the cherries and coarsely chop.

In a medium bowl, mix the cherries with the Cherchies Cherry Hot Pepper Jam.  You could stop right here and just eat spoonfuls of this glorious mixture.  But wait, there's more!

The assembly...Make sure to do this just as guests arrive.  Lay the grilled bread slices on a platter. Generously top the grilled baguette slices with the cherry mixture.  Then, sprinkle the slices with the blue cheese and almonds.  Heaven!  Enjoy.
