    LizzieBug's Note:

    This is my absolute favorite crostini! If you've never cooked with anchovies before, don't worry, they don't taste "fishy" at all and they totally dissolve in the butter. In fact, when I serve this I never tell people that there are anchovies in it. If anyone asks, I just say that I use garlic and herbs and my 'secret ingredient'. So far no one has guessed my secret ingredient and everyone loves the crostini. Based on a recipie by Giada De Laurentiis.

      Wonderful recipe! We love anchovies so I doubled the amount. Everyone raved over them and this recipe is going into my favorite appitizers. I am checking if they can be frozen and will add to this review when I test them Thanks Lizzie this is a keeper — Added comments - I put the frozen crostini in a 350F oven for 15 minutes - 1 minutes with broiler on and they were perfect! In fact they were almost better than first time baking. The picture where they are golden is from frozen state. If I could give these more than 5 I would thanks again Lizzir

      At first the anchovies scared me, but this crostini came out delicous, and if I had not known of the anchovies, I would never have guessed they were there. Very good! :)
