Cook Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 36 crostini

Ingredients

  • 1 baguette
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Slice the baguette at an angle (on the bias) creating discs approximately 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.
  • Spread out the bread slices on a silicone mat lined baking sheet.
  • Drizzle the bread with olive oil.
  • Place the bread in the oven and toast for 5 minutes. Flip the bread slices over and drizzle with olive oil on the second side if desired. Toast another 5 minutes or until they are just starting to turn a light brown. You may need to cook them longer or shorter depending on your oven and the bread thickness.
  • Remove from the oven and scrape a garlic clove against the toasted bread on one side. This step is optional but provides a subtle additional flavor.
  • Top with your favorite salsa or crostini ingredients. Crostini can be stored in an airtight bag or container for up to three days.

Notes

Season your bread by using an infused olive oil!
Watch your bread as they can become overly toasted quickly!  The exact cooking time will depend on the thickness of your bread and your oven.

The exact number of crostini you get out of a loaf will depend on how thick you cut them and how large the baguette is.
