Crostini 4 Ways for the Holidays
For the holiday season this year, we are obsessed with creating a collection of crostini for the whole family to enjoy. Each of these recipes packs a punch in a small bite-sized appetizer. The fun thing about creating your own version of this delicious appetizer is that you can customize it however you like. Our four recipes below focus on the classic, savory, sweet, and spicy. But, you can be as creative as you like!
When building a crostini, we recommend starting with a soft white bread like a French baguette. The move onto your base cheese. Brie, goat cheese, and ricotta all make for an easy solution. Then you can build on top of your cheese spread with fruit, olives, or a meat option. You can also top with fruit spreads, nuts, honey, and fresh herds.
So, what makes this appetizer different than a traditional bruschetta? Well, typically bruschetta is made with whole, wide slices of a rustic Italian or sourdough type bread. Whereas crostini are made with toasted baguette slices that are a bit smaller, softer, and rounder.
Let your taste buds take the lead when building these delicious appetizers. In the meantime, check out the four crostini recipes below for a little inspiration.Blog, Parties | November 30th, 2020
