Such a fancy name for a delicious and easy snack for during the All Star weekend.

For the gremolata, combine;

2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese

1 tbsp. each minced lemon zest and fresh thyme

1 tsp. minced garlic

1/2 tsp. each kosher salt and black pepper

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

Set aside.

For the crostini, brush;

16 baguette slices, 1/2-inch thick

3 tbsp. olive oil

16 thin slices fontina cheese or other soft melting cheese of your choice, (I used goat cheese).

Preheat broiler with rack 6 inches from element, Line a baking sheet with foil.

Brush the bread on one side with oil. Arrange slices on prepared baking sheet, oiled side up,  broil until lightly toasted 1-2 minutes.

Top each crostini with 1 slice of cheese. Divide gremolata mixture among crostini; broil until cheese melts. 1-2 minutes more.

Enjoy hot or at room temperature.
