24 slices (1/2-inch-thick) baguette-style French bread (from 10-ounce loaf)
1/2 cup julienne-cut sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
1/2 cup chopped cooked bacon
3/4 cup finely shredded Fontina cheese (2 ounces)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

Top bread slices with tomatoes, bacon and cheese. Bake about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve warm.
