Blue Cheese Toasts

1 baguette or another type of French bread
1/3 c. plus 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c. blue cheese (maybe a little more...)

Preheat the broiler.

Cut 1/2 inch thick slices from the baguette.

Toast the slices on a rack under the broiler about 4 inches from the heat, turning them once, or until lightly toasted. Remove from the broiler and brush the slices on each side with the 1/3 cup of olive oil.

In a small bowl, mash the blue cheese with the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Spread the mixture evenly over one side of each slice of toast. Broil the toasts on a baking sheet for 1 minute, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.
