Ciabatta Crostini

The Ciabatta Crostini Recipe Don't waste day-old ciabatta; slice it and bake the slices to make crostini, which will keep for days and can be used for snacks, canap├ęs, or croutons.

Ingredients:
1 loaf day-old ciabatta bread, olive oil

For the toppings:
1⁄2 cup arugula pesto, or 4oz (100g) roasted red
peppers, sliced and mixed with chopped basil,
or 1⁄2 cup black olive tapenade topped with
4oz (100g) goat cheese

Method:
1 Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Slice the ciabatta into 1⁄2in (1cm) slices. Brush the tops with olive oil.

2 Bake them on the top rack for 10 minutes, turning them after 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

3 Once cooled, top with any of the three suggested toppings, just before serving. If using the tapenade and goat cheese topping, briefly grill before serving.

PREPARE AHEAD:
The baked, unadorned crostini will keep in an airtight container for 3 days. Add the topping just before serving.
