1/2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

Preheat oven to 350 F. Preheat broiler with rack 4 inches from heat. Arrange baguette slices on a large baking sheet. Baked in preheated oven for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, yogurt, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, parsley and basil. Spread mayonnaise mixture equally over bread rounds. Top with crumbled bacon, tomatoes and shredded cheese. Broil crostini for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately and top with additional basil, if desired.
