I like my toast done on one side
I like toasting the bread on one side like this because it keeps the bread from being too crunchy (like if you toasted the whole slice in the oven, and it gets all crunchy).
I know I’ve bitten into crostini and had it all just crumble apart and I’m left with a big mess.
Or, when you bite into the toasty bread and it tears up the roof of your mouth. This toasting one side method saves you from both of those perils.
Can I eat the rind of Brie?
As for the Brie, I’m often asked if you can eat the rind.
Yes, the rind is perfectly edible, but it’s usually slightly more bitter than the creamy cheese inside.
Also, it has a totally different texture than the cheese itself. So, I usually cut off the rind when I’m eating a simple Brie and cracker snack.
But, in this crostini, I’m happy leaving the rind because there are so many textures and flavors.
If the rind bothers you, please feel free to trim it before placing it on the Crostini.
Or, even try one of those spreadable Bries that I’ve seen at the grocery store.
