Recipe: Basic Crostini


  • 1 baguette, cut diagonally into 1/4-1/2 inch pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚.
  2. Arrange baguette slices on a large cooking sheet, lightly oiled or lined with a Silpat.
  3. Rub cut side of garlic over crostini. Whisk together oil and herbs. Brush over baguette slices. Bake on center rack of oven 5-8 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Watch carefully in the last couple of minutes so they don't over-brown.

Active Time: 15 minutes

Bake Time: 5-8 minutes

Number of servings (yield): 2 - 2 1/2 dozen crostini (yield depends on size of baguette)
