These crostini are perfect for a dinner party hors d'oeuvres or appetiser. They can also be topped with just about anything, such as pesto, sun-dried tomatoes or artichoke dip.
Tried this recipe with foccasia bread and a sundried tomato topping and it was lovely. First time for crostini so will try other toppings too. - 16 Jul 2014
These are an absolute staple in our house, like butter or milk (or wine)! I don't use butter, however. I brush both sides of the thinly sliced baguette lightly with the olive oil. Turn them once, half way through baking. You're not limited to fresh garlic either - just sea salt is nice, sea salt and fresh ground pepper, grated Parmesan cheese, or even California-Style garlic salt. Just plain would probably be good too! I guess we use these for just about anything and everything you'd use chips or crackers for! These keep well in a sealed container and are so much better than the thick, stale things you buy at the store! - 16 Jun 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was flawless. Will go with ANY topping. Followed recipe exactly and used a French Bread recipe also from this site. - 08 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
