In Italian, “crostini” means “little toasts.” Crostini are made by slicing a French or Italian bread stick or baguette. Then rubbing with garlic and olive oil and toasting or grilling until crisp. The crostini may be drizzled with olive oil and salt and served plain, or they may be dressed with a variety of toppings and popped into the oven or broiler until warm.
They were super easy to make, tasted buttery, cheesy, fluffy and flaky, with the aroma from basil. They can be served pretty much with all the main courses, or just eating them directly is yummy enough!
Crusty french bread, brushed with garlic and olive oil topped with tomato, sea salt, mozzarella and basil then a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil make very fresh appetizers that showcase the simple ingredients. Quick and easy to make for guests in a flash.
