step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Cut the baguette crosswise into 8 equal-sized rounds. Roughly chop the capers. Roughly chop the peppers. Tear the cheese into bite-sized pieces; place in a bowl. Add the oregano, chopped capers, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

2 Toast the baguette & serve your dish

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the baguette rounds in an even layer. Toast 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and toasted. Transfer to a work surface. Top each piece of toasted baguette with the marinated cheese and drizzle with as much of the vinegar as you’d like. Serve the finished toasts garnished with the chopped peppers. Enjoy!
