Garlic Butter Parmesan Crostini
I serve this crostini with a spaghetti dinner, its also wonderful with a salad. You can use as much garlic as you wish, make certain to purchase the long thin French baguette for this. You can adjust all amounts to taste)Yield: 6-8 servings
|1||french baguette (cut into 1/2-inch slices)|
|3/4 cup||butter, melted|
|2 tablespoons||minced fresh garlic (use more or less!)|
|fresh ground black pepper|
|kosher salt (optional)|
|3/4 cup||grated Parmesan cheese|
Set oven to 250 degrees.
Prepare a large baking sheet/s.
Arrange the slices on the baking sheet.
In a bowl combine the melted butter with minced garlic.
Drizzle or brush the melted butter/garlic mixture over the top of the bread slices, then sprinkle lightly with kosher salt and black pepper.
Bake for about 15 minutes, remove from oven, turn over the slices and brush again with butter, then kosher salt and pepper; return to oven and continue baking for 1 hour or until golden brown, turning every 15 minutes.
Immediately after the slices are finished baking, sprinkle the top with grated Parmesan cheese.
Store any leftovers in the fridge.
