Beef and Blue Cheese Crostini's

I'm sorry it took me so long to post this, but I didn't want to just forget about it! I needed to save this recipe and let you all know how good it is! This was another new recipe I added to our favorites for the Christmas Party this year. It was definitely a hit and I wish I could have sampled a few more myself! I was making this as people arrived, so I was in a major hurry and not focusing on presentation as much as I could have, but they were delicious nonetheless.

Beef and Blue Cheese Crostini's
recipe from Taste of Home magazine. 
-1 French bread baguette (I happened to find a bag of bread pre-cut and it worked perfectly!)
-1/2 tsp ground pepper
-1/2 c light sour cream
-2 Tbsp minced chives
-1 Tbsp horseradish
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 lb shaved deli roast beef
-1/3 c crumbled blue cheese
-additional minced chives

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine sour cream, chives, horseradish and salt in a small bowl. Place (cut) bread on baking sheets. Spritz with cooking spray or olive oil (if you have OO sprayer). Sprinkle with pepper. Bake for 4-6 minutes until lightly browned. Top toasts with beef and dollop of sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and additional chives. Serve immediately.
