This garlic crostini is an extremely versatile appetiser that can be topped with almost anything. Elevated by the simple addition of olive oil, garlic, and salt, this appetiser is a must-try for everyone.
I love Italian food. Pizza, pasta, all of it is so delicious. So, what better recipe to share than a well-loved classic Italian appetiser.
Crostini is sort of like a bruschetta, but there are two main differences. With bruschetta it tends to be made of a rustic Italian bread or sourdough then it tends to be cooked by toasting the whole, thick slices.
On the other hand, crostini is made from fine-grain bread, such as white bread baguette, and then is cut into smaller slices then toasted to golden perfection.
My recipe seems so simple, but it truly needs nothing more. I love to dip mine into a batch of my homemade hummus, but there are so many options for dips and toppings out there that you will truly be spoilt for choice.
The best type of bread to use to keep it authentic is white bread baguettes. They are relatively easy to get a hold of, but any crusty bread will work for my recipe.
Also, I’ll tell you a tip, you can even use stale bread for this recipe! No need to throw away that bread, just make this delicious recipe instead. No mould though, obviously.
I use a serrated knife to cut my slices as using a normal knife will not allow you to get an even cut. Each bread slice should be about half an inch or less.
Another reason I adore this recipe is that garlic crostini does not need to be checked up on. There is no flipping or brushing on extra oil. All you need to do is pop into a preheated oven, set the timer, and then out they come all crispy, golden, and toasted.
To ensure that you get that correct texture, just give the crostini a slight tap. You should hear a slightly hollow sound.
This recipe is extremely simple to prepare and makes an excellent addition to parties. Excellent for dipping or simply slathered with a creamy topping then enjoy.
