Tyler Florence Herbed Goat Cheese Bites

This appetizer is so simple and amazing! Best appetizer I have had in a long time. 

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon
1 tablespoon fresh mint
1 8-ounce log soft fresh goat cheese
1 baguette
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
½ cup fresh basil leaves
Combine thyme, parsley, tarragon and mint leaves on cutting board and chop them finely together. Unwrap log of goat cheese and roll it in the chopped herbs, pressing the herbs to adhere. Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cut baguette into thin crostini-style slices and drizzle with a little olive oil. Gently press baguette slices into muffin tray so crostini form boat-like shape, and bake 5 to 7 minutes, until lightly browned and crisp. Let baguette slices cool in muffin tin.

Top each crostini with slice of herbed goat cheese. Top with sun-dried tomato and garnish with fresh basil leaves. Makes 16 to 20.
