Here is an easy-peasy bite that you can serve your guests while they are waiting for the main event to occur. Just don't let them eat too many. I made my own Batard and then sliced it into rounds; however, to make this even easier, you could purchase one from you local grocer. The ingredients are simple, but they compliment each other to create layers of wonderful flavor. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
