Warm Goat Cheese Toasts with Castelvetrano Olives

These beautiful warm goat cheese toasts are reminiscent of a French tartine.  If you aren’t familiar, a tartine is simply an open-face sandwich that can be topped with whatever cheese, meats, veggies, you name it, that you wish.  This particular toast is made with a crunchy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside Tuscan boule loaf that I cut into thick slices.  Then, I top each toast with crumbled goat cheese, sliced Castelvetrano olives (my fav) and some rose-hued and flavored pink peppercorns.  Bake for a mere 5 minutes or so, until the bread is warm and the cheese a bit gooey, these toasts are perfect alongside a main course salad or bowl of soup.
