Recipe FAQs:

What is the difference between crostini and bruschetta?

Bruschetta 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.

What bread is crostini made frome?

A baguette is traditional for crostini but you can also use ciabatta or Italian bread.

How long can you keep crostini and how do you store?

To store, keep the crostini in an airtight container or bag at room temperature for up to a week. You can freeze the unbaked or baked crostini, too. Store them in a freezer-safe container or bag for up to 3 months. Bake as normal from frozen, or warm the already baked crostini for a few minutes in a 350ºF oven
