Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy prep and they turned out very yummy! Very easy prep and they turned out very yummy! I cut them in half before serving at my party,too, and found that the half-size was better for people to just pop in their mouths. I was skeptical of the cheddar cheese with the pesto (I would have thought mozzarella or parmesan would be better), but I have to say that the flavors really compliment each other.

She cut each toast in half before topping them. They were the perfect size for party fare. I plan on serving these at my next party.
