I often visit my parents on Sunday, and Sunday dinner at their house is a big deal. It’s in the middle of the day, it involves at least three courses, one of which is always pasta, there’s a lot of wine, and when it’s done, all I want is a nice long nap.
And then a few hours later, the seemingly impossible happens. I need a snack as if my life depended on it. I need a tartine.
A tartine is a type of open-faced sandwich, usually spread with something delicious. It’s quick and easy and makes the perfect late night, midnight, or post-Sunday dinner snack.
Tonight, I made mine with goat cheese and radishes and averted a serious hunger crisis just in the nick of time.
Ingredients (makes one to two servings):
- 3-inch piece of ciabatta or baguette (about four or five slices)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 2 - 3 small radishes (about half a radish per slice of bread)
- 3 - 5 tablespoons of goat cheese (less than one tablespoon per slice of bread)
- salt and pepper to taste
Make the tartines:
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cut the bread into slices about half or three-quarter of an inch thick. Toss in the olive oil and bake on a cookie sheet at 450 degrees.
After ten minutes, turn each slice over and cook for another ten minutes, until golden brown.
Meanwhile, slice the radishes and thinly as you can.
When the bread is done, let cool and then spread a little less than one tablespoon of goat cheese over each slice. Top with some of the radish slices and then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
