Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Crostini are simply small, thin slices of toasted bread that are brushed with olive oil. For extra flavor, try rubbing these crostini with garlic cloves before spreading them with the cheese mixture.
Look for bags of shredded lettuce in the produce section of your supermarket. Or, you can use small pieces of torn leaf lettuce instead of the shredded lettuce.
