Goats Cheese and Walnut

Goats Cheese, Walnut and Honey Toasts

This is so easy, and has remained a staple on the canapé menu since our first winter. The combination of nut, goats cheese and honey is always an absolute winner. As it's a canapé, what you are looking for is a thin baguette, that people can eat in 1 or 2 bites and also that the round of goats cheese will sit on nice and neat.
