Garlic and Rosemary Crouton Toast

The perfect finger food.

Garlic Toast in Basket

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.

Crouton toast makes a delightful finger food appetizer too when topped with savory ingredients such as an Olive Tapenade or…

Cream Cheese Crouton Toast

…something as simple as cream cheese and chopped chives (or the green part of a green onion).

Feta Cranberry Crouton Toast

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.

  1. Just come across this blog Im so glad! Im just going to grab a coffee and sit down for some sunday morning reading!

  2. Yummy! Anything that is garlic just bring it on … love the crouton toast and could use some of it with my soup tonite too.

  3. Lovely! So sorry about your spoon!

  4. That looks very good! I especially like the idea of putting Craisins and feta together. Sorry about your measuring spoon–I have the same set. They’re good because the metal numbers don’t come off in the dishwasher! Guess it’s time to hit the store…

    • Hi Nancy, it sure is time to hit the store and I’m going to buy an extra set this time. Have a great rest of the week!
