Recipe for Italian assorted crostini topped with salami, salmon and mozzarella
Preparation and cooking
- - Steam potatoes.
Let them cool and then peel and slice.
- - Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F).
- - Slice a baguette and arrange its slices on a baking pan.
Divide them into three parts.
Brush all slices with olive oil.
- - Garnish a first part with doubled salami slice and a second part with smoked salmon pieces.
Arrange potato slices on the third part.
- - Put a bit of mozzarella cheese on salami and salmon and sprinkle with dried chives.
Put some pieces of pancetta on potatoes and sprinkle with dried rosemary.
- - Bake until mozzarella cheese melts.
Just before serving
- - Serve your assorted crostini warm.
- - You can garnish these assorted crostini in advance and bake as soon as guests arrive.
- - Generally, I grate my mozzarella instead of cubing it. I use a large hole grater. Good tip for pizza too, remember it!
- - With a baguette I usually get 45 to 50 croutons if I do not cut it into thick slices. I usually avoid it not to create any problem for my guests. So every portion includes about 4 croutons. Is it sufficient for your purposes? it depends on what you are planning and what you intend to serve together.
- - Use these croutons in different times and situations. A rustic buffet, a snack party in the afternoon, your happy hour (Italian aperitivo) with friends on a Saturday or Sunday night ... or your favorite football match on TV!
In the next paragraph I suggest a number of cocktails but keep in mind that my croutons can be matched to a glass of wine or prosecco too!
