Classic Crostini Toasts

Classic Crostini Toasts get their rich flavor from using good olive oil & they may not seem like much but the truth is, these unassuming morsels can serve as the solid foundation for a lovely game day entertaining football party menu, a holiday open house gathering or a festive birthday celebration with close friends. Even just a smattering of goat cheese spread over the surface topped with an assortment of quality chopped olives make them feel a bit indulgent. Learn how to make & serve a beautiful array of appetizers for your next tailgating social.

The Basic Fundamentals

The key is to bake the toasts long enough to slightly dry the bread but not too long too where they are dry & chewy. Look for lightly browned edges as your cue that the toasts are ready.

2 {15-oz} quality baguette, cut into 5/16-inch slices
1/2 cup olive oil
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Arrange the bread slices in a single layer on half sheet pans. Brush the slices with oil. Bake, in batches, 10 minutes. Switch the oven to the broil setting. Place the pan under the broiler. Cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until the toasts are lightly browned. Sprinkle generously with salt & pepper. Cool completely. 

The Extra Point 

Use the toasts to accompany soups & salads.

The toasts may be prepared & frozen up to 3 weeks ahead if placed in a zip-top bag. Remove from the freezer & unzip the bag. Allow the toasts to thaw at room temperature, about 1 hour. Place on a half sheet pan in a single layer. Bake at 300 degrees 5 to 6 minutes then allow them to cool completely for crisp texture.

Serve the toasts with a variety of dips including Lemon-Garlic Hummus, Lemon-Garlic Lentil Dip, Blue Cheese-Pecan Spread & Classic Spinach-Artichoke Dip
