Crostini Trio

"Crostini" in Italian literally means "little crusts" or "little toasts." The idea for these three crostini recipes comes from this website. I made slight variations to one, using orange marmalade instead of fig jam and Romano instead of Pecorino cheese. These are great appetizers and are very easy to make. I really like the idea of making all three as the tastes are so varied and unique, yet they really compliment each other. And the best part, you can make as many as you want! I usually do at least 36 at a time. Enjoy!

Baguette, cut into 1/2" pieces
Olive Oil
Cherry Jam
Orange Marmalade
Fuji Apple Slices
Blue Cheese Crumbles
Pecan Pieces

1. Place baguette pieces on cookie sheet.
2. Drizzle with olive oil.

3. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
4. Place blue cheese crumbles and pecans on 1/3 of the pieces, then place back in the oven to broil for an additional minute.
5. Before serving, drizzle honey on those pieces.

6. On another 1/3 of the pieces, add cherry jam, brie and a piece of arugula.

7. On the last 1/3 of the pieces, add marmalade, apple slices and romano.

8. Serve immediately.
