Baking Tray


Make the Crostinis

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) Slice the ciabatta into 1cm wide slices, making approximately 6-8 slices per roll.

c) Pop the ciabatta slices onto a baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. 

d) When the oven is hot, bake the crostinis on the middle shelf until golden, 8-10 mins.

Prep your Rarebit Style Topping

a) While your crostinis are in the oven, grate the Cheddar cheese.

b) In a small bowl, mix together the grated cheese, cream cheese and Dijon mustard.

c) Once the crostini are baked and golden, remove them from the oven and spread the cheese mixture over the top.

d) Return the crostinis to the baking tray. Place on the top shelf until the cheese is melted and golden, 5-10 mins.

Finish and Serve

a) While the crostins are returned to the oven, finely chop the chives (use scissors if easier).

b) Once cooked, remove the crostinis from the oven and allow to cool slightly.

c) Place on your serving platter and sprinkle over the chives to finish.
