Howdy, I haven't tried this yet but its from Southern Living which normally puts out good stuff and it sounds like a great appetizer. Thought some folks might be doing dinner for the holidays so here goes:

  • 1-8oz loaf crusty bread
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 16oz can of cannellini or great norther beans, drained/rinsed
  • 1/4 tsp. grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp. dried crushed red pepper

Cut bread in 12 1/2" slices place on bakng sheet.

Bake 375 for 5-7min until toasted.

Saute garlic and rosemary in hot oil in nonstick pan for 2 minutes.Add beans, lemon, salt and pepper. Cook until heated, mashing beans to desired consistency.

Spread on bread.
