Crostini

Posted By Vera On March 3, 2008 @ 11:18 pm In Hors d'oeuvres | No Comments


Crostini made from one baguette are usually enough to serve 6. To be on a safe side, I like to double the quantity. Crostini can be kept in an air-tight container overnight without losing their crispiness, so the leftovers can be eaten the next day.


Ingredients:

  • French baguette
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375. Center an oven rack.

Generously drizzle the olive oil over the large baking sheet.

Slice the baguette diagonally into about 1/3-inch thick slices. Place the baguette slices, in a single layer, on the baking sheet. Flip the slices over to oil another side. Add more oil if necessary.
Bake the slices for about 8-10 minutes on one side, until the bottom is golden brown. Turn the slices, bake for additional 6-7 minutes, until toasted.

Cool on the baking sheet on a rack.
