I prefer a baguette for its size, but you can also use deli sandwich rolls, ciabatta, French bread, or even my Cranberry Walnut Bread to make crostini.Can I use non-stale bread to make crostini?You can definitely use fresh-baked bread to make crostini any time, even for the freeze-and-bake method. Less stale bread will actually be crispier than stale bread once it becomes crostini. Can I freeze crostini?Yep, just slice the bread, oil both sides, and freeze them in ziploc bags until you need them. When it's party time, pop the frozen slices into a preheated oven and bake until crispy. You may need to add a few more minutes of baking time to it.Can you make crostini ahead of time?Yep! Just follow the recipe instructions to make crostini and store in airtight container up to 5 days (or more!) at room temperature. You may need to pop them into the oven to make the surface crispy again.How to serve crostini
