Crostini is the ultimate finger food and a great way to cross-utilize ingredients from other parts of the menu. Chefs are topping bread slices with inventive combinations of savory ingredients, such as the asparagus, prosciutto, red peppers and cave-aged Emmentaler cheese used in this recipe. Almost anything goes!

Ingredients

1 small baguette, cut into 3/4-in. slices
1 tbsp. olive oil
4 oz. prosciutto, thinly sliced
6 stalks asparagus, roasted and coarsely chopped
1/2 cup roasted red peppers, sliced
4 oz. Kaltbach cave-aged Emmentaler Switzerland AOC, thinly sliced
Herb sprigs, for garnish

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Brush each baguette slice with olive oil. Evenly top each with prosciutto, asparagus, peppers and cheese.
  3. Bake for 5 to 7 min. or until cheese is fully melted. Garnish with sprigs of fresh herbs.

To keep staff motivated, we locked them in a room together. As part of a midsemester training session, we formed work groups and sent them to a local Escape Room to see which team could play the game together most effectively and escape first. Not only was this training a great team-building experience, but it supported a local new business and gave our staff a memorable experience.
