Lardo Crostini

366

Here’s another recipe for one of my favorite salume – Lardo. I discovered lardo back in 2012 and buy it at every chance I get. Here’s my last entry about lardo and where to get it. The following is a recipe that is hard to mess up. My friend John B. introduced me to this recipe. Normally, I would just slice thin pieces of lardo and have it by itself. I think it makes for great dinner parties and will amaze all your guests.

Ingredients:

Baguette slices

Toasted walnuts, rough chopped

Lardo – thinly sliced

I’m not going to tell you how much of each ingredient so just start off with as much lardo as possible. Just match the picture above.

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove them from the oven and add a slice of lardo to each piece of bread and top it off with some toasted walnuts. Place it back in the oven for 3 minutes. Top them off with some freshly ground pepper and salt. Serve immediately.

Tips:

Add dates, orange peel, basil, or sun dried tomatoes.
