  • 2 gluten-free baguettes
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (13-ounce) jar orange marmalade
  • 8 ounces Manchego cheese
  • cup Marcona almonds, coarsely chopped
  • Finely grated zest of 2 oranges


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Slice the baguettes on a slight angle into ¼-inch thick slices. Brush both sides of each slice with olive oil. Sprinkle each side lightly with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy.
  • Can be made ahead – let cool completely, then store without toppings in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Spread the crostini with marmalade. Using a vegetable peeler, cut the cheese into thin slices. Place cheese slices on top of the marmalade and sprinkle with the chopped almonds and orange zest. Best served immediately.
