Garlic and Rosemary Crouton Toast
The perfect finger food.
This crouton toast is wonderful eaten as is for a snack, or as a side dish served with soup or salad.
It’s also the perfect complement to a cheese or sliced deli meat platter.
…something as simple as cream cheese and chopped chives (or the green part of a green onion).
Appetizer toppings can also include sweet and savory flavors like: thinly sliced tomato, feta cheese, chopped dried cranberries, and thinly sliced fresh basil. Really good.
These type of appetizers are great for a party or get-together because they not only look colorful, pretty and appetizing on a platter but they can be made ahead of time.
Although the recipe below calls for an entire loaf of French bread, feel free to use less bread if you like; just cut back on the other ingredients accordingly.
The crouton toasts can be made ahead of time and store nicely in a zip-top plastic bag.
