Crostinis for Mommy and Daddy

If you are looking for a dish to bring to a party or serve at your own that is super easy to make, but looks really impressive, this is it. Not to mention, they are totally delicious. These crostinis take about 20 minutes to make, sometimes less.

(This is not the best picture, I put them on a big tray when they were done, but I was in a rush and took a picture of a few of each type of crostini)

Here's what you need:
1 large French baguettes
Olive oil
Sun dried tomatoes
Goat cheese
Gorgonzola Cheese
Fig Jam
Artichoke Bruschetta
Roasted red pepper tapenade
Raspberry preserves or jam

Preheat oven to 350F. Slice baguette into 1 inch slices. Place on a baking sheet and brush both sides with olive oil. Place in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Take them out and let cool. Now let's add the toppings!

Crostini 1:
Spoon pesto on crostini and place one sun dried tomato on top.

Crostini 2:
Put a spoonful of goat cheese on the crostini. Place one pecan on top of the cheese and drizzle with honey.

Crostini 3:
Put a spoonful of fig jam on the crostini. Place a little bit of crumbled gorgonzola cheese on top, and then finish with a little prosciutto.

Crostini 4:
Put a spoonful of hummus on the crostini. Top with a spoonful of artichoke bruschetta (you can find this in a jar at your grocery store).

Crostini 5:
Put a spoonful of hummus on the crostini. Top with a spoonful of tapenade.

Dessert Crostini:
Spread nutella on the crostini. Top with Raspberry preserves or jam.
