Crostinis are an essential part of my entertaining.  They can be used in so many appetizers with an unlimited number of toppings, with dips and spreads. They only take a matter of minutes to make and stay well for days on the counter in a zip lock and even longer in the freezer. That convenience of being able to make them ahead of time leaving you with one less thing to do and allowing you more time to enjoy yourself with family and friends goes with out saying!
