These little crostini’s are a delicious appy on a warm or cold day. The fresh mozzarella, whether you get the buffalo or cow mozzarella is very refreshing and toasting the crostini’s in the garlic chilli oil is awesome!
Slice your baguette into 1 – 2 cm thick crostini’s.
Heat the oil on medium high heat, remove from the heat and then add the garlic and hot pepper. Stir occasionally for a couple of minutes to allow the flavours to incorporate into the oil. **Note**After handling hot peppers, make sure to wash your hands and the cutting board!
Now dip the baguette slices into the oil on one side only.
It’s toasting time…you can toast the crostini’s one of two ways. Option one is placing them on a baking tray and then into a preheated 400° F. Bake until lightly toasted. Option 2 is to do it right on a preheated BBQ grill. Grill on medium high heat lightly on both sides until toasted.
Slice the mozzarella into 1 cm thick slices. Cut the larger middle slices in half so that they are roughly the same size as the crostini’s.
Place the sliced mozzarella on the crostini’s and then season with salt, pepper and/or paprika.
Finish off with some other garnishes if desired and then serve and enjoy!
Try different baguettes from the bakery. Roasted garlic, jalapeño or multi-grain are all delicious.
