Today will be a big day, blog-wise! I'll be testing a homemade Oxy-Clean recipe on chocolate milk, and preparing our Chinese recipes for the 52 Week challenge. I'll have pictures! And nieces as assistants!
However, in the meantime, I have a small recipe for basil crostini. I made it because I had a third of a loaf of bread leftover from dinner earlier in the week, and also because I wanted a lighter, less bready version of garlic bread to go with our spaghetti that we had yesterday. Sorry, no pics this time-they were gone by the time it occurred to me to get them.
Bread, sliced thinly (ideal would be a baguette or smaller loaf)
2t crushed garlic
2t fresh minced basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Up to 1/2 c mozzarella or parmesan cheese
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line up slices on a baking sheet. In microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Add garlic and basil, mix thoroughly. Brush mixture onto slices of bread. Top with cheese-I used approximately 1T per slice, but it's a matter of personal taste. Bake until bread is toasted and cheese is melted-I think it took 7 or 8 minutes for me. Very flavorful! My Dudes made them disappear, and so did I.
