Crostini or Italian Croutons

Crostini is Italian croutons. Its a nibbly party food. I tried to make it for a potluck party where Italian food was the theme. It is real simple yet has elegance of Italian food.


1 French baguette, sliced  approximately 1/3” thick
2-3 tablespoons olive oil or olive oil spray
Salt and pepper, to taste

Toppings: There are as many variations for toppings as the number of people making it. I am going to mention some of my favorite:

mozzarella cheese slices
chicken breasts
salted fish slices
cut mushroom slices

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly brush or spray both sides of each bread slice, then arrange on a baking sheet.

2. Season each piece with salt and pepper.

3. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and crisp. Remove from the oven and let cool before topping with ingredients.

4. Load it up with toppings right before eating it. Garnish it with salt and pepper.
