  2. For the crostini bases, cut each of the 4 baguettes into 20 slices, ½cm thick, discarding ends. Drizzle with olive oil and place under the grill. Cook for 2-3 mins until lightly golden, then turn over and cook for another 1-2 mins until golden and crisp all over. Do this in batches and store in a large, airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

This was amazingly easy to make as a starter. We had a party of 30 people and this along with the other crostini was perfect. Very tasty and fresh. Took 10 minutes to assemble after the bases were made, which we did two days before.
