Looking for easy appetizers? French Bread Crostini is easy and versatile. These are good with any dip – especially my Baked Goat Cheese Marinara. They are best served warm, but you can easily make them a day ahead and store in a zip-lock bag, then just wrap them in aluminum foil and reheat in the oven for a few minutes before serving. The Crostini are also delicious served with a salad!
Feel free to add seasonings to these if you like. Suggestions would be garlic salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, or parsley. You can even top these with shredded Parmesan cheese or shredded Italian cheese as soon as they come out of the oven for additional zing!
- 12 slices French bread
- ¼ cup olive oil
- Use a serrated knife to slice the French bread and place on a shiny cookie sheet.
- Brush both sides of the bread slices with olive oil.
- Toast each side under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden. Watch carefully so they don't burn.
