OK. Like I said, pretty simple, eh??? Now, onto those potatoes. These were simply AMAZING!!!

Organic Garlic, Organic Parsley, Organic Garlic Chives, Organic Potatoes, Organic EVOO, Organic Butter, and WOODEN SPOON

That’s right. I said, WOODEN SPOON. SuperHuge TIP: The spoon acts as a holder for your potatoes when you are slicing them super thin. Holds them still and acts as a stabilizer! Pretty Neat! Let me show you:

Now, slice your garlic superthin and insert 4-6 cloves in each potato.

Now, for one last tip. And listen up, this is a good one.

It’s going to change the way you make crostini for the rest of your life.

Seriously.

What to do with that itty bitty clove of garlic that has been bathing in the butter/oil/herb mixture?

USE IT to make a Bangin’ Bruschetta!!!

Oil both sides of Crostini and Grill on Grill Pan

Oil both sides of Crostini and Grill on Grill Pan

After both sides are done, RUB THE GARLIC CLOVE all over the hot side of the crostini. The side that just came off the pan. This releases a subtle garlic flavor on the crostini without having to bite into a huge chunk of garlic.

It is delicious.

Divine.

You will thank me later for this one!!!!

Now. let’s kick it up one last notch and make it into a healthy Bruschetta.

Seriously. Good.

Now, Sit Down.
