Crostini, or "Little Toasts" in Italian, can be topped with your favorite toppings and make the perfect appetizer.
Slice bread into 1/4-inch pieces. Brush sides of the bread with olive oil. Broil for 5 to 10 minutes until golden but not browned. Remember to turn slices over to color both sides. Brush slices with garlic as soon as they are taken out of the oven. Cool on a wire rack before topping with your favorite combinations.
Crostini can be made a couple of days ahead - store in an airtight container and just refresh in a warm oven if they have become stale.
