This recipe is for crostini, which is seasoned toasted bread. It doesn’t sound too amazing, however, paired with a nice dip of any kind, it becomes a focal point everyone will talk about.
For the weekend, we will make a soup, which goes great with these crostini. But be careful; these are addictive once you start making them.
