Toasted Asparagus and Honey Crostinis

My kitchen has turned into the ultimateĀ revolving door with friends, and friends of friends, popping in several times a week. Many times unexpectedly, which is exactly how I like it. Growing up I always wanted to live in a house that was bursting with friends, family and lots of pets! Now as a pseudo-adult, I’ve been able to somewhat create that feeling in my house. With friends popping in all the time, I have come up with a few quick go-to dishes and appetizers that I can throw together in no time. This is great for sharing and easy to transport if you want to take to a potluck!


You’ll need:
French Bread
Asparagus
Ricotta (I like to use part-skim)
Honey
Garlic Salt
Pepper
Olive oil


First, slice the french bread into one inch thick slices.


Drizzle one side of each french bread slice with olive oil. I used about one tablespoon of olive oil for 6 crostinis.


Sprinkle the french bread with garlic salt and black pepper.


Smear each piece with a thin layer of ricotta cheese.


Slice pieces of asparagus to fit the length of the crostini.


Place crostinis on a baking sheet lined with foil. Toast at 350 degrees for 5-6 minutes or until edges are crispy.


Nice crispy edges!


Drizzle each piece lightly with honey.


Perfect as an appetizer or snack!


Enjoy!
