Buttered Parmesan Crostini

I love the word crostini because it makes me think of something cute and small and crusty. And that’s exactly what it is. Cute, small, crusty… and in the case of this Buttered Parmesan Crostini, it’s also cheesy and gooey. 

There came a time when I had a bowl of Herbed Potato Leek Soup, and I wasn’t full. I was still starving. I could feel the soup swirling around in my belly. It was nice and warm and soothing, but I still needed something solid. That’s when I decided I needed some cheesy bread.

When I think of cheesy bread, I think of garlic bread smothered in melted yellow cheddar cheese that gets oil on your chin when you take a big bite. I thought I’d try something a little more sophisticated, so I did some experimenting and came up with this parmesan crostini.

This recipe makes a small portion, so you can make it alongside a pasta or soup dish for two. I did just that, and saved the rest of my baguette to make sandwiches the next day.

If you have guests, you can definitely double or triple this recipe and serve it as an appetizer. Or hoard the entire batch and feed them all gummy worms.

Ingredient Notes

Any good cook knows that the key to a great recipe is using quality ingredients. This is especially true when it comes to bread.

A baguette made with fresh, high-quality flour will always taste better than one made with subpar ingredients. The same is true for other ingredients like parmesan cheese and unsalted butter.

In the case of this recipe, the baguette provides a crispy, crunchy texture that pairs perfectly with the creamy parmesan and butter.

The spring onion adds a hint of sweetness and a subtle onion flavor.

Overall, these ingredients work together to create a delicious, crave-worthy dish. So next time you’re in the kitchen, be sure to use quality ingredients – your taste buds will thank you!

FAQ and Tips

Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect Buttered Parmesan Crostini:

  • Use a good quality baguette. A nice, crusty baguette will hold up better to the toppings and make for a better overall crostini.
  • Slice the baguette into thin slices. If the slices are too thick, they’ll be difficult to eat and won’t have as much flavor.
  • Be generous with the butter and Parmesan cheese. These are the star ingredients, so don’t be shy!
  • Toast the crostini until they’re golden brown and crispy. This will help them hold up to the toppings and give them a delicious flavor.

With these tips in mind, you’ll be sure to impress your guests with Buttered Parmesan Crostini that are nothing short of perfection!

Can I make Buttered Parmesan Crostini ahead of time?

Parmesan Crostini can be made up to 24 hours in advance. Simply toast the bread, prepare the topping, and store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Can I substitute the butter for another type of spread?

Yes, you can use margarine, cream cheese, or another type of Spreadable Butter product. If you do not have access to buttered Parmesan cheese, you could also use shredded Parmesan cheese.

How should I serve Buttered Parmesan Crostini?

Buttered Parmesan Crostini are best served warm, straight from the oven. However, they can also be served at room temperature. If you are serving them at a party, you may want to set out a few different toppings so that guests can customize their own crostinis. Some popular toppings
