Here’s an easy recipe for crostini that requires more assembly than actual cooking. In less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a welcome addition to a holiday spread.

Ingredients

12 baguette slices, cut ½-in. thick

3 tbsp. olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

1 garlic clove, halved crosswise

8 oz. burrata cheese, drained

6 slices prosciutto di Parma, halved

½ cup fresh basil leaves

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Place bread slices on large, rimmed baking sheet. Brush each lightly with olive oil; sprinkle one side with pinch of salt and pepper.
  2. Bake bread slices about 15 minutes until golden brown, turning once. Remove from oven; while hot, rub each slice with garlic clove.
  3. Halve burrata cheese and cut into ½-inch thick slices. Top each crostini with a slice of burrata, prosciutto slice and basil leaf. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and rizzle with a little of remaining olive oil
