day old baguette
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!
This was flawless. Will go with ANY topping. Followed recipe exactly and used a French Bread recipe also from this site.
Excellent, but a bit time intensive if you need a lot.
I used a wheat bagette for this recipe and added fresh shredded parmesean cheese after coming out of the oven. Nice appetizer or great with italian meal.
Excellent, love these.
Super easy and taste great. My butter was frozen so I melted in the microwave and brushed on the individual crostinis. I happened to serve it with the hot artichoke and sun-dried tomato dip from this site, but this is a perfect basic recipe.
Really easy to make. I make this when I have friends come over, they think it's fantastic.
I highly suggest using a garlic press, it saves a ton of time and you can find them at the dollar store. Also if you melt the butter a bit, you can use a silicone marinade brush to spread super fast.
