Toasts of the Town

Toasts with Toppings and Numbers

Toast: it isn’t just for breakfast anymore. Call it crostini if you want, but we’re taking bread beyond bruschetta. Spread, sprinkled or drizzled with soft cheeses, meats, fruits, nuts and more, these toasts make excellent appetizers and snacks. This crusty, crispy stand-in for crackers is perfect for entertaining. (From left to right)
