Avocado Crostini

Crostini means " little crusts " in Italian. They are typically made with a French baguette or  long

 loaf of bread. Crostini are sliced and toasted from a smaller, round, finer textured bread like a white

 bread baguette. 

Avocado crostini are a very simple yet delicious snack / breakfast / appetizer for your entire

 family. Toast the Crostini as it is or with a  slight drizzle of olive oil.  Top it with mashed or cut

 Avocado, season with  your favorite veggies or nuts or seeds. They make a great snack or breakfast

 dish. My kids love this and have it for evening snack / after school snack. 

This recipe goes to Week 2 Day 1 of Blogging Marathon 133 under the theme " Kids Delight -
