Learning how to make crostini will give you a simple but elegant holiday appetizer that can be ready in a very short amount of time.  I don’t have a lot of extra time at the holidays to create complicated recipes.  Holidays are often held at my home so most of the food preparation falls on me. That is one of our holiday traditions that I really enjoy. I try to make some of the dishes ahead of time like the cranberry bread. It’s not possible to make everything ahead of time so I try to find easy holiday recipes for our parties when I can.

Now that I know how to make crostini, I have one simple appetizer that I can fall back on. Crostini are small pieces of toasted or fried bread served with a topping as an appetizer.  I generally prefer to start with a baguette (a long, narrow loaf of French bread) but when I cannot find it at the store, I will start with traditional French or Italian bread and cut each piece in half.
