  • Preheat the oven to 400 ̊F with a rack in the center of the oven. Using a serrated knife, slice the baguette into 1/2” thick slices, cutting them diagonally (or on the bias).
  • Arrange toasts on a rimmed baking sheet. Brush both sides with extra virgin olive oil, about 3 Tbsp for 1 baguette. Bake the toast for 7 to 10 minutes until the edges are slightly golden.* Remove them from the oven and cool to room temperature.
  • While the toasts are in the oven, make your tomato topping. In a mixing bowl, combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, 1 Tbsp olive oil, salt, and pepper and toss gently to combine.
  • Once the toasts are cooled to room temperature, spread the goat cheese or your desired cheese over the tops of your toasts then add your tomato topping. Set the crostini on a serving platter and drizzle the tops with balsamic glaze


*How to Tell When Toasts are Done: When the crostini are toasted, they should be lightly browned on the outside, with a little give in the center.

Make-Ahead Tips:

  1. Spread the cheese and add the tomato topping on the toast no more than 1 to 2 hours before serving so the bread doesn’t get soggy. Add the glaze just before serving.
  2. Make the tomato topping (omitting salt), toast, and balsamic glaze up to 24 hours in advance, storing them separately. Then add salt to the tomato mixture and assemble the dish just before serving.
