Here is a fine appetizer and a different take on bruschetta. It still has the tomatoes you love but adds some cheddar to make it a creamier finger food that melts in your mouth. I served it to my guests and family and they really enjoyed it. There were no leftovers so make a double batch if you have a really big crowd. Served hot from the oven makes this one you can serve any time of year. I found this recipe from Vicki Thompson in a 2009 Taste of Home Summer appetizers booklet. Makes two dozen of the French baguette size but if your French bread slices are larger it will make one dozen. Enjoy! ChefDLH
