Expert Tips

Garlic-and-herb cream cheese spread is a soft cream cheese found alongside the regular cream cheese in the grocery store.

To make ahead, toast the bread and cool the slices completely before storing them in an airtight plastic bag. Just before serving, spread the crostini with the cream cheese mixture, and broil them.
