Crostini 3 Ways

I swear, I did not mean for this dish to feature Christmas colors (unlike Sandra Lee, I do not coordinate my food with my decor), but, alas, there they are. Perhaps it was an unconscious choice.

In any case, this is my favorite way to throw together pretty-looking appetizers while doing seven other things (likely including but not limited to: talking on the phone, checking Facebook, washing a dish and cooking whatever else I’m serving). Basically, they require half an eye and very little thought to put together yet they always turn out gorgeously.

  • ingredients
  • extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly $0.50
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar Pantry
  • 1 baguette, sliced into 1/2”-thick slices $1.50
  • 6 oz. ricotta $3 for 14 oz.
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced very thinly $0.25
  • honey Pantry
  • Balsamic Cranberry Sauce (or your favorite fruit preserves) $2 for 1 1/2 cups
  • black pepper to taste Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $7.25


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Drizzle 3 tbsp olive oil into a medium frying pan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook for 18-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until caramelized. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from heat.

Arrange baguette slices on a baking sheet and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly crisp. Let cool.

Spread baguette slices liberally with ricotta.

Top 1/3 of the slices with 2-3 slices jalapeño and a drizzle of honey.

Top 1/3 of the slices with a few pinches of caramelized onions.

Top 1/3 of the slices with a spoonful of cranberry sauce or preserves.

Top all crostini with a sprinkle of freshly-ground black pepper.

Serves 4-6.

Tempat sampah stainless memang memiliki bentuk dan model yang jauh lebih elegan dan unik, tak ayal ada beberapa orang yang memesan tempat sampah ini hanya sebagai pajangan di rumahnya saja tanpa digunakan selayaknya tempat sampah. Dan bahkan bagi para pengguna jasa kendaraan Trans Jakarta, mungkin sudah tidak asing lagi melihat tempat sampah stainless terpampang pada tiap haltenya. Tapi pilihan tetap pada anda, yang terpenting adalah tetap sediakan tempat pembuangan sampah agar anda dapat sehat jasmani. Dan pilihlah tempat sampah dengan desain yang sesuai dengan kebutuhan anda agar tidak mengurangi keindahan dan kenyamanan ruangan anda.
