appetizers on toast or bread (or croutons)

Roast beet and burrata crostini

Although when we lived in Umbria, crostini inevitably meant little slices of pane de Terni smeared with a paté of spleen, they have since become the tapas or pintxos of Italy. Use your imagination, and put on whatever you like.

Crostini also means croutons or rusks.
