There are so many things I love about crostini. First of all they are delicious. Secondly, they are super-easy to make, and lastly, you can top them with whatever ingredients you like.
I find that these make real crowd-pleasing canapés and any time I’ve prepared them for guests, they’ve always gone down a treat. In this recipe, I’ve gone for three of my favourite toppings; parma ham and fig, smoked salmon and cream cheese and mature cheddar and grape.
here's what you'll need...
- Half a French baguette, sliced thinly
- Olive oil
Parma Ham and Fig Crostini:
- 4 slices of parma ham
- 2 figs
Salmon and Cream Cheese Crostini:
- 4 slices of smoked salmon
- A tablespoon of cream cheese
- A few springs of dill
Cheddar Cheese and Grape Crostini:
- 4 slices of mature white cheddar
- 4 grapes
