This is a wonderful, elegant appetizer that is also relatively low-calorie. It makes a nice light but filling beginning to a special occasion.

Made these to include on my munchies buffet this evening! I doubled the recipe, making one batch with Italian bread & the other batch with a whole grain bread! I like the latter one more, but my other half went for the light bread, but both of us agree, that however it's done, this crostini is wonderful & tasty! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
