Everyone loves a person who shows up to social occasions bearing snacks.

Quick, easy and cheap to make — pesto toast works great as a quick snack or an appetizer to share. Follow these five simple steps for a finger food that will disappear in a crowd faster than Hannibal Lecter at the end of “The Silence of the Lambs.”

Here’s all you need:

 

– One sourdough baguette.

– One tub of pre-made pesto sauce.

– One or two cups of shredded Parmesan.

– About one-third cup of mayonnaise, give or take.

Step one:

Slice the baguette into small pieces that are about a half an inch thick.

Step two:

 

Mix the shredded Parmesan and mayonnaise in a bowl. The mixture should be thick but spreadable. If need be, add more or less Mayonnaise.

Step three:

 

Spread pesto sauce on each bread slice. Once done, cover the pesto with a generous amount of the cheese mixture.

Step four:

Preheat an oven to 375 degrees. Place the prepared slices on a baking sheet and bake them in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes. The slices should be slightly browned when you take them out.
