Swiss Bacon Crostini with Truffle Oil

Ingredients:

  • 1 piece bacon
  • 8 thin slices of baguette
  • 1+ oz. Lorraine® cheese
  • Truffle oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place a wire rack on top of this and coat the rack with nonstick cooking spray. Lay 1 piece of bacon on the rack and bake for 17-20 minutes, until the bacon is very crispy. Blot the bacon with a paper towel. Cool on rack until you can easily handle, and then crumble the bacon into little bits. Set aside.

Meanwhile, thinly slice the baguette. Place slices on a greased baking sheet and place in 400° F oven for 5 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and crisp.

Top each toasted slice of bread with Lorraine® cheese, to taste.

Place back in the hot oven until cheese is melted (should only take a couple minutes).

Top with crumbled bacon, a touch of pepper, and drizzle with truffle oil.
