You can toast bread slices for crostini in several ways. One method is to put them to bake in the oven until they become crispy. If you prefer you can use a grill and your bread slices will become ready faster. The third option is to use a ribbed grill pan.
Crostini with black pepper and basil
Preparation: Cut the baguette into slices and put them to toast. Next, while still warm, coat them with olive oil. Cut the peppers into strips and set them aside.
Slice the onion into crescents and toast in a dry Teflon saucepan that has been sprinkled with black pepper and a little salt. Once the onion changes color slightly, begin to arrange on top of the slices as follows: peppers, toasted onion, sprinkle with thyme, place a thin slice of cheese and a piece of cucumber. Sprinkle with basil at the very end.
The next crostini recipe is suitable for vegetarians, since animal products will not be required. Cut a baguette or ciabatta into slices, then coat them with olive oil and let them toast. Next, rub them well with a garlic clove.
In a bowl, place finely chopped fresh basil leaves and tomatoes. The key is to have the tomatoes cut into small cubes - it is best not to use the inside of the tomatoes. Season with olive oil, salt and pepper, then place on the slices.
For the next recipe you will need cream cheese. Smear the already toasted and coated with olive oil bread slices with cream cheese as well, then sprinkle with a little black pepper. In a pan, very briefly fry some green onion stalks.
In a suitable container, throw in the diced cucumber and finely chopped green onion stalks, then stir well and season with a little black pepper and parsley. Place the mixture on top of the cream cheese bread slices.
Our last proposal can again be made with cream cheese or ricotta cheese.
Crostini with ricotta
Preparation: Smear the baguette slices with olive oil, toast them, and then put ricotta cheese on. On top, arrange fig pieces and pour on just a little bit of honey.
