    8 thin slices good quality white bread, crusts removed. Brush with a little
    melted butter and bake for a few minutes in a 350 oven until slightly crisped,
    but not browned.
    8 t. sour cream
    8 t. grated Parmesan cheese
    8 t. finely chopped chives

    spread each slice of bread with a little sour cream, sprinkle with cheese and
    chives and cut each slice on diagonal. Place on cookie sheet and just before
    serving. place under broiler for 1 minute to brown tops. Be careful as there are
    only a few seconds between brown and burned. Serves 8
