“Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes, and cooking.
It’s about harnessing imagination, empowerment, and creativity.”
We all love a freshly baked crisp French baguette, but when the slices resemble tiny clouds floating in the clear blue sky that makes everything taste a little better. To make this traditional crostini appetizer family friendly we added a bit of color and a bit of taste.
To get started, slice your baguette and lightly toast the pieces either with a toaster or under a broiler. I like to spread mine out on a cookie sheet, brush with olive oil and bake under the broiler for a few minutes. When your bread is toasted and cooled down the fun can begin! Grad your kiddos and grab your ingredients. We’ve found that almost anything tastes great on toast so feel free to get creative and mix and match your toppings.
Some kid approved combinations in our house include:
/ Unsalted butter or ghee, thinly sliced radishes, himalayan salt, parsley
/ Extra Virgin Olive Oil, sliced turkey, cucumbers, a drizzle of aged balsamic
/ Pesto, turkey, marinated yellow peppers, parsley or basil
/ Apricot jelly, Prosciutto, purple basil
/ Pesto, olive oil, grape tomatoes, freshly grated parmesan
Happy cooking and bon appétit!
