      I was looking for a very simple instruction about how to prepare crostini. Simple recipe but I looked at Jamie Oliver and he just said "grill the slices" - er - do you turn them over? All the others elaborate about toppings but don't mention the bread. So thank you.

      Easy and delicious! Added some parmesan during the last minute of baking to some of them and topped with bacon jam once they were out... Mmm, mmm!

      I was looking for a basic crostini recipe and this was it. I brushed both sides with a mixture of olive oil and bottled pureed roasted garlic. I cut some on the diagonal and others (for appetizers) straight down. Will make again for sure. Update: I have discovered that bottled roasted garlic olive oil (in Canada there is a President Choice brand of this) lightly brushed on each side is very quick, easy and tasty. When I see half priced day-old baguettes, I usually pick up one or 2, slice and the freeze to have on hand when I want to make crostini.
