Recipe Notes

Pre-made crostinis can be found in the cracker isle or specialty cheese department at your local grocery store.

These can also be made into full size sandwiches. Slice baguette into 4 equal sections and slice in half. Toast halves and assemble one half in the same fashion as the crostini. Top with remaining half. Makes 4 sandwiches.
