Easy Party Crostini
After puddings and desserts, my favourite things to eat are little savoury nibbles. The first thing I do at a party is to sidle over to the food and check out the appetizers/hors'doeuvres/cocktail bites/canapes or whatever you want to call them. Then I usually make a mental note of my favourites to make at home.
The simple ones are usually the most popular - which is good because you can make a ton of them to satisfy your guests.
These little crostini were made from day-old French bread, which was sliced, and the slices were then cut in half again. Brush them with olive oil and crushed garlic, then grill them on both sides until golden. Slice or crumble your choice of blue cheese on the top, add a sun dried tomato and a basil leaf. I like the tomatoes that come in the olive oil with herbs.
My crostini nibbles are off to a party, being hosted by What's For Lunch Honey? Appetizers & Hors'Doeuvres!
Hope to see you there!!
