Buzzworthy Baguettes

If you need a last minute appetizer but want to keep it simple, let the highly versatile baguette save the day. Thinly sliced and lightly toasted, the baguette is a perfect canvas for culinary creativity. Just add your favorite toppings and BAM, you’re done. If you’re gluten-free, simply sub in cucumber slices or endive leaves for an easy carb-free alternative. There are classic baguette-based apps like bruschetta, but have fun experimenting with your own combinations.
