Crostini à la Dragon

My own take on garlic bread with the works. This is a favourite appetizer at my dinner parties, but the recipe is hearty enough to serve as a meal in itself!

Crostini à la Laura

  • 1 fresh baked, hearty whole grain baguette
  • 1 oven roasted garlic with roasting oil
  • 140 g chevre, room temperature
  • fresh basil leaves, torn into small pieces
  • sun dried tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • roasted red pepper, cut into small pieces
  • feta cheese, crumbled
  • fresh grated parmesan


Slice baguette in half and place both halves, cut side up, on a baking tray.
Drizzle oil from the oven roasted garlic over the bread.
Spread bread with chevre.
Pile on basil, tomato, pepper and feta.
Top with parmesan.
Place under broiler on low heat until parmesan turns golden brown.
Enjoy immediately.
