Hi, I am Devon. I am 15 and aspiring to be a professional chef. I'd like to know if you guys (or girls) would know if this crostini sounds good. I'd like suggestions, so I can improve my recipes. So here is my crostini with prosciutto and roasted bell peppers.
1 loaf of french bread cut in diagonals with a diameter of 2' (only cut 15 slices)
15-20 tblsp of extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt and ground black peppercorns to taste
15 slices of prosciutto (fold to fit the crostini)
1 - 8oz container of fresh mozzerella chese
3 medium sized red bell peppers cut in half and (for lack of better term) "gutted"
The supplies you would need include:
A broiler pan
An oven (I hope you'd have one by now...)
A baking sheet
A mixing bowl
First, you would preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (be sure to set it to BROIL). While that is preheating, take your broiling pan and place your six bell pepper halves on it. Coat with olive oil and salt. roast for 3-5 minutes turning after about 2. (watch carefully) Once roasted, set the peppers in the mixing bowl and cover with seran wrap. Let cool to room temperature. Once room temp, peal skin and slice into thin strips.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. place bread slices onto baking sheet. Coat with olive oil and seasonings. Let cook for approx. 10 minutes. When ready add sliced peppers, prosciutto and cheese. Then BROIL for 1 minute or less at 500 degrees. (watch so you don't burn)
Makes 15 servings.
If you do not like prosciutto, you can leave it out and replace with another color pepper.
If you like your prosciutto "raw" looking, add the cured ham on top after broiling.
Please respond asap, I need feedback before I bring this in to class.
Thanks a million,
