Last-Minute Crostini Recipes

As prepared by Broke Ass Gourmet,

Why serve expensive frozen mini quiches or greasy egg rolls, when you can offer your last-minute (ahem—unexpected) guests insanely easy, delicious and beautiful crostini?


Just keep a baguette in your freezer and some soft cheese in your fridge for a quick snack or appetizer. That way when those random neighbors, quirky friends or sorry-we-forgot-to-call-first in-laws show up on your door, ready to be fed and entertained, you can swing into action.

Easy Crostini Bread

First, prepare the basic crostini.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice a fresh baguette or baked Pillsbury crusty French loaf  into 3/4-inch slices, on the bias. Arrange slices on an ungreased baking sheet and drizzle generously with olive oil. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or just until lightly toasted.

Easy crostini cheese spread

Next, spread each slice with cheese.


Use a butter knife or silicone spatula to spread each slice of baguette with a tablespoon of ricotta, soft goat cheese or cream cheese.

Easy crostini toppings

Finally, garnish each crostini.


Here’s where you get to be creative. Feel free to make a batch of just one type of crostini, or mix it up. Variety makes it look like you worked extra-hard!

Some suggested crostini toppings:

thinly sliced roasted red peppers

sliced, pitted olives (any kind)

thin slices of green jalapeño and a drizzle of honey.

thinly sliced basil and sundried tomatoes

slices of smoked salmon, a few capers and a sprig of dill

thin slices of prosciutto and fresh figs

cooked pieces of bacon and fresh tarragon

slices of ripe avocado and chopped cilantro

halved slices of salami or pepperoni

prepared pesto and halved cherry tomatoes
