Simple Crostini Recipe

A crostini is the answer to all your appetizer needs when you don’t have time to make something crazy but still want it to be delicious. Or if you’re just feeling lazy and want some good old bread covered in delicious toppings (aka every day of my life)

These I made for dinner last night, and it took all of 15 minutes to throw them together. You can really use whatever you like! I made sure to make a “dessert” one to save for last…

This recipe makes two of each, but you can adjust the ingredients based on how many you’re making!

Avocado Crostini:
1 small avocado
Squeeze of lemon juice
2-4 small radishes, sliced
2 eggs, hard boiled and sliced
2 chives, chopped
Drizzle of olive oil
Maldon salt
2 pieces sliced baguette

Start by hard boiling the eggs – my trick is to place them right in the pot with the cold water then once the water starts boiling set 10 mins on the timer and you’ll have yourself some hard boiled eggs! Next, smash the avocado with some lemon juice (which helps to keep it from browning) and spread on the bread. Top with the sliced eggs, radishes, chives, Maldon salt, and a smal drizzle of olive oil.

Goat cheese & Fig Crostini:
6 tablespoons goat cheese
2-3 figs chopped
2 piece prosciutto
1/2 teaspoon spiced honey (I used Mike’s Hot Honey, but you can also just mix some paprika etc with some honey)
2 pieces sliced baguette

To assemble, just spread on the goat cheese, followed by the prosciutto, chopped figs, and a drizzle of the spiced honey.

Ricotta & Strawberry Crostini:
4 tablespoons ricotta
1 teaspoon honey
3-4 fresh strawberries, sliced
10 small edible flowers, optional (you can usually find these at Whole Foods or Eataly in NY)
2 pieces sliced baguette

In a small bowl (or food processor) whip together the ricotta cheese and honey. Spread on the bread and top with the sliced strawberries and edible flowers.
