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.

These quick and easy crostini were so tasty, creamy goat cheese, fresh basil and garlic, simple ingredients made the delicious flavor. We always serve these crostini as appetizer when we have company to come over, and always got rave reviews; or when we have some several days old bread, we make these small treats, and it is a great way to help us finish up the old bread :)
