Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups red, green or blue-black seedless grapes, halved
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 French bread baguette
8 ounces smoked chicken/turkey breast (1 3/4 cup), either shredded or cut into bite-size strips
12 ounces shredded fontina, port salut, or Monterey Jack cheese
1 tablespoon snapped chives
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven broiler to 550°F (287.7°C).
  2. In a small bowl combine garlic, olive oil and salt. Set aside.
  3. Slice baguette on bias into 1/2-inch thick slices. Brush baguette slices with garlic-oil and place on cookie sheet. Toast in broiler about 1 to 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from broiler. Bread should be crisp on the outside, but still soft in the center.
  4. On each slice of bread place about 1 tablespoon chicken/turkey breast and 3 grape halves, then top with 2 tablespoons shredded cheese.
  5. Place cookie sheet about 8 inches away from broiler and broil for 2 to 3 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Place on serving platter and sprinkle with snapped chives and pepper.

Makes 8 servings.
