Crostini stee-ni) directly translates to ‘little toast’ in Italian, and are just that, with yummy toppings.
Crostini differs to bruschetta (bruh·sheh·tuh). Bruschetta is simply made with grilled slices of bread rubbed with raw garlic and topped with chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, and salt. Crostini are little slices of toasted baguette-style bread with toppings. Traditionally, there was also a difference in the type of bread used. Bruschetta uses wide slices of rustic Italian or sourdough bread. Crostini is made from a smaller, round, finer-textured bread, more like a white bread baguette (the name comes from Crosta, the outside of the bread.)
Have you heard of Crostoni!? Now the Italians are confusing us. Crostini is like crostini but uses larger slices of bread.
