Recipe by Ilysse
I love this, but then again I love anchovies. Great with before dinner drinks along with some olives, nuts, etc. Cook time is chill time.
- 8 tablespoons sweet butter
- 16 anchovies packed in oil, drained
- 14 slices tuscan bread, thin slices, toasted if desired
- capers (to garnish) (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Place the butter in a bowl and mash it gently with a wood spoon for 15 minutes until it is soft and creamy.
- Place the anchovies in a second bowl and mash them into a paste.
- Incorporate the mashed anchovies into the butter, mix well until completely combined. There shouldn't be any anchovy chunks in the butter.
- Cover the bowl with foil and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- Spread the butter on the crostini and place on a serving dish.
- Garnish with two capers in the center of each crostini if desired.
