Crostini sounds like the name of a famous music composer, but it isn’t! It is a class of Italian appetizers, made of small slices of grilled or toasted bread, brushed with butter or olive oil, and topped with varied cheeses, sauces, veggies or even fruits.

The crostini might be seasoned with spices and herbs for added zing. Crostinis range from simple ones with just herbs and sauces to more elaborate ones with several toppings.

The Burrata Cheese and Cherry Tomato Crostini is an outstanding variant that is loaded with burrata, a fresh Italian cheese made with mozzarella and cream, and dainty cherry tomatoes. A sprinkling of sea salt instantly boosts the taste and aroma of the crostini, making it appetizing beyond words!
