Impromptu Crostini

Hope you’ve had a wonderful holiday with your friends and family and I hope you’re not done celebrating yet! Maybe someone will stop by impromptu. What will you feed them? Or maybe you have a New Year’s Eve party to attend. What will you bring?

Here are 3 crostini that you can make in just minutes – pretty, festive, and delicious! They’re just the kind of thing to pair with a cocktail or a glass of bubbly…

First, make the crostini. You can make them right before serving or a day ahead – stored at room temperature in an airtight container.

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice a baguette into 1/2″ slices and arrange on a baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle baguette slices with olive oil.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Top immediately or cool completely on a baking rack and store at room temperature in an airtight container.

Other than making the crostini, you don’t need a recipe. Just have the items below on hand and assemble the toasts to your taste!

    I love the look of all three of your crostinis!! And you have given me a great idea for what to make for a New Years Eve starter – although it is going to be hard to choose just one…i might have to make all 3 :)
