No recipe image available.Crostini translates as 'little toasts' in Italian. For flavor variations, try brushing the crostini with infused oils or sprinkle with desired dried herbs or seasonings.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 loaf French bread, ends trimmed and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Arrange the bread slices on the baking sheet and generously brush with olive oil. Turn the slices over and repeat brushing with olive oil.
  3. Bake for about 6 minutes, turning the baking sheet around in the oven halfway throught the baking time to ensure even browning. Bake until the croutons are lightly browned.
  4. Cool crostini completely before serving.
  5. Serve as is with foods, or top as desired.

Makes about 32 crostini.
