Garlic Crostini

Garlic Crostini created by littlemafia

I purchased a box of 'garlic chips' the other day. I arrived home only to discover my four dollar box of bread slices were all broken. It was then that I decided I'd simply make my own...less expensive with better flavour. Crostini are multi-use flavoured and baked thin bread slices. I've used them to float cheese in onion soup, broken into giant croutons for salads, and my favourite...as a base for flavourful spreads and appetizers. Don't discount their use plain, as a crunchy snack either. Recipe #415921 is an easy and tasty spread that goes well with these. I recommend using day old baguettes to make slicing easier.

ingredients

directions

  • Mix olive oil and minced garlic in a heat-proof measuring cup. Microwave at half power for 30 seconds. Set aside.
  • Note: depending on the size of your baguette, you may have to double the garlic oil ingredients.
  • Preheat oven to 375*. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice the baguette, on the diagonal, into 1/4" to 1/2" thick slices.
  • Using a pastry brush lightly wipe both sides of the bread slices with garlic oil. Arrange on the baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle (one side only), lightly with kosher salt and black pepper (if using).
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Turn slices over and continue to bake for another 5 - 10 minutes or until golden in colour and crispy. The baking time will depend on the thickness of the slices and the amount of garlic oil used.
  • Remove from the baking sheet and let cool in a single layer on a cooling rack.
  • You can use these immediately, or allow to cool completely for storage in an airtight container.

    I was too tired to even peel the garlic and I also wanted to try my Recipe #421782. Our garlic crostinis are too thin and hard and my girls cannot enjoy them without me worrying about their little teeth breaking.This was very delicious and it was a perfect snack. Left my camera at my parents',but mine didn't look as pretty as yours.I sliced the baguette one night in advance and they were pretty crooked.So I had crooked garlic crostini.Thanks for sharing!
