1 French baguette, sliced
1 jar Robert Rothschild Farm Balsamic Caramelized Onion Spread
5 oz. Boursin cream cheese or goat cheese, softened
2 Beef tenderloins, 4 oz. each
1 sprig Rosemary, freshly minced
Extra-virgin olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Slice the French baguette into 1/4-inch slices, cut on a bias (diagonal). Place 12 - 14 slices onto a baking sheet and lightly brush top surface with olive oil. Season each slice with a little salt and pepper and place into a 375 degrees F oven. Bake for about 4 - 5 minutes until lightly brown and slightly crispy. Remove and allow to cool. Spread a layer of cheese on top of each crostini. Spread a layer of Balsamic Caramelized Onion Spread on top of the cheese. Top with very thin slices of beef tenderloin that has just been grilled to desired doneness and allowed to rest. Garnish with a sprinkle of minced rosemary on top of tenderloin. Serve while beef is still warm.
