    newspapergal's Note:

    I first made this for a Valentine's dinner with DH. We really loved it. I used a skinny whole-wheat baguette, so the slices were small two- or three-bite ones. and I left out the sliced chives. Yumm. from "Everyday Italian" on Food Network.

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Arrange the bread slices on 2 heavy large baking sheets. Brush them with olive oil.
    3. 3
      Bake until the crostini are pale golden and crisp, about 15 minutes.
    4. 4
      Blend the goat cheese and cream cheese in a food processor until smooth and creamy.
    5. 5
      Add the parsley, thyme, and lemon peel.
    6. 6
      Using the on/off button, pulse just to blend.
    7. 7
      Season with salt and pepper, to taste. (I use kosher salt & fresh-ground pepper).
    8. 8
      Spread the cheese mixture over the crostini.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle with the olives, chives, and more pepper. Arrange the toasts on a platter and serve.
    10. 10
      Do-Ahead Tip: The crostini and cheese mixture can each be prepared 2 days ahead. Store the crostini in an airtight container at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate the cheese mixture. Let the cheese mixture stand at room temperature for 1 hour to soften slightly before spreading over the crostini.

      I made this and it was devoured. Adding the chives really does brighten the flavor. I highly suggest this as an appetizer
