2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
Salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Fold in grapes and pine nuts. Spread a tablespoon of cheese mixture on each baguette slice. Broil until heated and lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

Be sure and cover the entire piece of bread with the cheese mixture or the bread will burn. And, watch them like a hawk while they are in the boiler.
