So we’re going to go ahead and start making
our Crostini. Now I bought a couple of loaves of day old bread, since we’re
just going to be toasting this. You know what? If day old bread is available,
go ahead and purchase it. It’s really not going to make any difference
on the flavor of this. So what we need to do is we need to go ahead
and cut this into 3/8 to about 1/4 inch slices of bread. Then we are going to rub a little olive oil
or butter, whichever you prefer, on top of these, and we’re going to
just brown these on both sides. So why don’t I go ahead and show you how we
get these cut up. For one thing, you don’t have to worry if your pieces
aren’t all perfect. That’s really not going to matter too much. So go
ahead and cut them as evenly as you can. So now go ahead and spread those Crostini
onto a baking sheet. Be sure to turn your oven on broil. I use the setting
high on my oven. And you know what? These are going to take just moments
to do. Drizzle on your olive oil. Go ahead and brush these out with a little
pastry brush, and you are going to have perfectly toasted Crostini. Now what can you do with Crostini? You can
put just about anything on it. You can put a little bit of cheese, some fresh
tomatoes, drizzle it with a little balsamic vinegar. You’re going to have
a fabulous appetizer. These go into the oven, and then we are going to
let them brown on one side. Flip them over and if they need a little bit more
oil, go ahead and drizzle that on, pop them back through the oven. When you
take them out, let them cool completely before stirring them. And there
you go, the Crostini are ready for whatever you like. Please be sure to rate,
