Crostini with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
These tasty treats are great to serve at a party! Be sure to use sun-dried tomatoes that are not packed with oil.
Makes about 20 slices
6 sun-dried tomato halves
2/3 cup roasted red peppers (about 2 peppers)
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, or 1 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 baguette or Italian loaf, cut into 1/4" slices
In a small bowl, pour enough boiling water over the tomatoes to cover and set aside until softened, about 20 minutes. This process will reconstitute the tomatoes.
Pour off the water and coarsely chop tomatoes. Place in a mixing bowl. Chop roasted peppers and add to tomatoes, along with garlic, basil, and black pepper.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place bread slices on a baking sheet and bake until crisp and lightly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Spoon tomato mixture onto slices of toasted bread. Serve immediately.
