What kind of bread should I use for my roast beef crostini?
Crostini and Bruschetta are very similar. From the Italian word “bruscare” meaning “to roast over coals” is made by toasting whole, wide slices of a rustic Italian or sourdough type bread. Crostini are sliced and toasted from a smaller, round, finer-textured bread, more like a white bread baguette.
How should I toast my bread for a crostini?
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange your baguette slices on two large rimmed baking sheets; brush both sides with oil, and season with salt and pepper.
Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through (if undersides are not browning, turn crostini over once during baking).
After your toasts have cooled, you can get to topping!
Pair these roast beef crostini with a nice glass of wine. A great Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz is a perfect match for beef, and completes this bite!
