Crostini is a great use for home dried herbs, and is my current favorite snack. Crostini, meaning “little toasts” in Italian, it is easy to make, works great as a use for day old bread, and keeps for up to a week in a plastic bag or glass container. They are also amazing served as appetizers, topped with fresh mozzarella, pate, roast peppers, or anything that strikes your fancy.

Fresh Herb Crostini

1 loaf French bread, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Extra virgin olive oil

Dry herbs: Any combination you can think of (this batch is simply Rosemary & Thyme)

Salt & Freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 400*F

2. Arrange the bread slices on the baking sheet and generously brush with olive oil.

3. Combine herbs, Salt & Pepper and sprinkle over bread slices.

4. Bake for about 6 minutes, turning the baking sheet around in the oven halfway through the baking time to ensure even browning.

5. Cool Crostini completely before serving.

Enjoy!
