Almond Bacon and Cheese Crostini


 1 French bread baguette (1 pound), cut into 36 slices  
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese  
2/3 cup mayonnaise  
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted  
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled  
1 green onion, chopped 
Dash salt  
Additional toasted almonds, optional 

1.  Place bread slices on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400℉ for 8-9 minutes or until lightly browned. **

2.  Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cheese, mayonnaise, almonds, bacon, onion and salt. Spread over bread. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with additional almonds if desired. Serve warm. 

Yield: 3 dozen.

**These are very crusty.  If you want them a little softer don't prebake the bread.  Just bake after putting on the cheese mixture.  This is also good on regular french bread slices or baked potatoes etc.
