  • 20 to 25 (1/2-inch-thick) slices baguette (2-inch diameter)
  • 1 to 2 extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon soft goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Finely grated rind of 1 large orange
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries


  1. Set oven rack 4 to 5 inches from the broiling element. Heat broiler.
  2. Place bread rounds on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush tops lightly with oil. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Broil about 90 seconds, watching carefully, until edges turn golden brown. Remove from oven.
  3. Combine ricotta, goat cheese, heavy cream, ½ teaspoon of the orange zest, salt and pepper in the bowl of a food processor. Process until completely smooth. Scrape into a small bowl. (Alternately, beat with a wooden spoon until as smooth as possible. Mixture may remain a bit grainy, which is fine.)
  4. To assemble, spread ricotta mixture on toasts. Top with 1 or 2 strawberry slices. Sprinkle with remaining orange zest, black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve immediately.
