Anchovy Crostini

Recipe by Bergy
READY IN: 35mins




  • Cut 2" circles from the bread (or use the 1/4" baguette slices).
  • Brush both sides of the bread with the olive oil.
  • Place on a cookie sheet and bake in moderate oven for 10 min or until golden brown (You can make up a whole lot of these toasts for future use as they store well in a closed tin).
  • Melt butter in a frypan.
  • Add flour, mixing well and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add milk and stir over moderate heat until it boils& thickens, remove from heat.
  • Add 3 tbsp parmesan,Salt& pepper& mushrooms.
  • Mix well.
  • Add anchovy paste and stir through. The mixture looks a bit loose but it will bake perfectly
  • Spread 2 teasp on each toast and generously sprinkle with the extra parmesan. I do this just before I am ready to bake them. however it can be done and then freeze them for future use
  • Slice the olives and put a slice of olive on some of the crostinis.
  • Put a rolled anchovy on some.
  • Put a thin slice on red pepper on the remaining crostinis.
  • Bake in a hot oven (400F degrees) for 10 minutes or until they are bubbly and brown on top.
  • Serve and wait for the rave revues.
