Easy Crostini Recipe

Have you ever bought a baguette and forgotten about it? Let me tell you a story about this poor baguette that sat in my pantry for 3 days..lonely and going stale. I was ashamed to have let this happen, so I decided to make something with it!


I thought of croutons, but I wanted something more exciting, so I went with a crostini. My crostini recipe basically uses a baguette to make tiny toasts that you can serve with a dip or enjoy on their own like I have been tonight!


If you haven’t heard of crostini, it translates, in Italian, to mean “little toasts”. This name is so fitting, because that’s exactly what it is, little pieces of bread/toast! These are also great topped with some melted cheese or bruschetta. You can’t really go wrong with what you top them with!


They’re so easy and quick to make, and great to have on hand for a quick snack or meal. You’re going to love these, give my recipe a try!




INGREDIENTS:


  • 1 baguette (a few days old)

  • 1/4 cup of butter (softened)

  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)

  • 2 tablespoon of olive oil




STEPS:


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Slice the baguette crosswise into 1/4-inch thick slices.

  3. Arrange the bread slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet (I lined mine with a silicon baking mat).

  4. Mix the butter, garlic, and olive oil in a small bowl until well combined. Spread the butter mixture on one side of each slice of bread.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly toasted and hard, about 10 minutes. (If you'd like to top them with melted cheese, take them out of the oven after 7 minutes, add the cheese and bake or broil for another 2-3 minutes.

  6. Enjoy on their own or with your favourite dip! Bon appétit!
