Ingredients • 1 baguette, cut on a bias into 1/4-inch slices • EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling • Salt and pepper • 1/4 pound bacon, diced • 1 large onion, diced • 2 apples, preferably Honeycrisp, diced • 1/2 cup sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded • Yields: 8-10 as a snack
Preparation • Preheat oven to 400ºF. • Scatter the baguette slices on a large baking sheet and drizzle with EVOO, salt and pepper.

With a slotted spoon, remove bacon and reserve fat. • Add the onions to the hot bacon fat and caramelize for 10 minutes. Add in the apple. Season with salt and pepper; cook for another few minutes.
