Crostini is great to pair with so many different foods or to just eat as a snack. I usually always use it with homemade bruschetta. Check out my blog for the Bruschetta Recipe
- loaf of baguette bread
- extra virgin olive oil
- cracked black pepper
- sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
The first step in making crostini is cutting the bread about 1/2 an inch thick.
Next, lay parchment paper on a baking sheet and lay each piece of bread onto it. Then, using a brush coat one side of the bread with oil, add some pepper and salt, flip the bread over, and repeat.
Once the oven reaches 350 degrees, put the crostini in for about 8 minutes, flip it over and bake for an additional 8 minutes. Oven temperatures vary, so I recommend checking on it a few times. You want it to be golden brown on both sides. Tip: If you are not eating it right away, I will let it cook more to make it crunchier. The reason behind this, is if you make them and are using them the next day, they taste a bit stale if they are only slightly crunchy around the edges. If you make they crunchy all over, they do not taste stale and you can eat them the following day.
