Truffle oil is top-quality olive oil that has been infused with either white or black truffles. Both types of truffles have an earthy, mushroom flavor.

- 1 baguette, cut into 24 slices about 1/4 inch thick
- 1 medium garlic clove
- 8 ounces goat cheese
- Truffle oil*
- Fresh thyme leaves
- Pepper, fresh-ground
Prepare crostini: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and bake for approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven and very lightly rub the toasted bread with the garlic clove. Allow to cool before adding toppings.
When ready to serve, spread each slice of toasted bread with a thin layer of goat cheese. Pour a small amount of truffle oil into a teaspoon and tilt the spoon to sprinkle 3 or 4 drops on each toast. Sprinkle pepper over the top and garnish with a few thyme leaves.
* Bottled truffle oil loses aroma over time as it is a truffle extract infusion. This delicate oil loses characteristic aroma quickly, so store in the refrigerator. If you are a truffle fanatic, like me, you will have no trouble using it before the aroma is weakened.
