  • 10 slices Specially Selected French Baguette
  • 3 tablespoons Carlini Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon Stonemill Table Salt, plus additional to taste
  • 3/4 teaspoon Stonemill Ground Black Pepper, plus additional to taste
  • 1/4 cup Stonemill Parsley Flakes
  • 15 ounces Priano Ricotta Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Southern Grove Pistachios, shelled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup Berryhill Honey


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut each slice of bread in half. In a medium bowl, toss with olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add parsley flakes, toss until coated.

On a baking sheet, lay each bread slice in a single layer. Toast for 4 minutes, flip, toast for 3 more minutes or until light golden brown.

In a small bowl, mix ricotta with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Spread ricotta onto each toast, sprinkle with pistachios and drizzle with honey.

Serve immediately.
