Goat Cheese Corstini

(Photo by: www.oregonlive.com)

 

Crostini is Italian for “little toasts”! How cute and accurate. Crostinis are made by thinly slicing bread, usually plain white bread, and toasting (or grilling) so that it becomes crispy.

 

This recipe uses goat cheese as the topping, but there are a variety of alternatives you can use as toppings. Mangia y Bevi!

 

SERVINGS: 32

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 package soft goat cheese, at room temperature

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives (substitute with other fresh herbs as desired)

Salt and pepper to taste 8 (3/4-inch-thick) slices French OR Italian bread, each cut into quarters on the diagonal

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Preheat oven to 350°F.

 

Mix in a small bowl goat cheese, chives, salt and pepper (this mixture can be made in advance, if you choose to do so, cover and refrigerate, lasts for 2 days).

 

Place bread on a baking sheet in middle of oven for 10 minutes or until golden.

 

Remove.

 

Preheat the broiler.

 

Spread cheese mixture on toasts and sprinkle with Parmesan.

 

Broil crostini for about 2 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned.
