Ricotta Crostini

Ricotta Crostini

Yield: About 24 Crostini

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

I love appetizers, so much beauty and deliciousness in one to two bites (and who doesn’t love eating things with their hands? )  When eating out, small plates and apps are one of my favorite ways to try a bunch of different things at a restaurant. When cooking, they are a fun way to experiment with new flavor combos.  These crostini are a great way to start off a dinner party while your guests wait for the main event, or a shining star for a cocktail party. My recipes listed here are just a sample of the unlimited possibilities,  get creative and play around with different cheeses, breads, spices, and toppings!
