Pepper and Garlic Crostini

Pepper and Garlic Crostini

Posted 2016-11-17 by Bastion Harrisonfollow


Meaning 'little crusts' in Italian, Crostini are small pieces of toasted bread with a bitesize topping. Although today they are thought of as posh party canap├ęs, their origins are a lot more humble. Crostini dates all the way back to Medieval Italy and was peasant food, for the poor whose entire meal was so meagre it fit onto a small slice of bread.

While I don't suggest returning to such scant time, these pepper & garlic crostini would make an excellent starter for a celebratory dinner or finger food to pass out at a party.
