tips & techniques
step-by-step
instructions
1 Prepare the ingredients

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Slice the baguette into 8 equal-sized rounds. Peel 1 clove of garlic. In a bowl, combine the ricotta and romano; season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the honey (kneading the packet before opening) and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. 

2 Toast the baguette

Place the sliced baguette on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toast in the oven 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from the oven. When cool enough to handle, carefully rub one side of each slice with the peeled garlic clove, then discard the clove.

3 Make the crostini & serve your dish

Evenly top each piece of toasted baguette with the seasoned ricotta and calabrian honey. Enjoy!
