Crostini Heaven

Crostini stands for “little toast” in Italian. They are brushed with some olive oil and crisped in the oven enough to add some savory toppings on them. The first time I actually ever had a crostini was during my time in Italy, and ever since then my obsession for them grew. I went ahead and decided to try out some fun and different toppings that I’ve never had before. I’ll list the ingredients I used for my toppings  but feel free to get creative with yours as well. The fun of a crostini is that the topping possibilities are endless!

Ingredients:

  • 1 baguette sliced
  • 6 oz – 15 oz container of Ricotta cheese
  • 6 oz goat cheese
  • Chives
  • Basil
  • Lemon zest
  • 1 radish sliced thinly
  • 1 pair sliced thinly
  • A few walnuts
  • A couple black berries
  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • Fig Jam
  • A slice or two of prosciutto
  • A few blueberries
  • Basil thinly sliced
  • Honey for drizzling

Steps:

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees
  2. Slice baguette in about 1/4 inch slices
  3. Lay out on rimmed baking sheet
  4. Brush both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, rotating Crostini once during baking
