Prep Time

30 Minutes

Cook Time

15 Minutes


Serves 8


All Ingredients are available in the Market.



  • 1 Baguette
  • Olive Oil
  • Kosher Salt
  • Black Pepper

Black Truffle Buter

  • ½ Ounce Black Truffle, Sliced or Shavings
  • 2 each Anchovie Filets
  • ¼ Pound Butter, Room Temperature

Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 375
  2. While the oven is heating, cut the baguette
  3. I use the tip of my finger to gauge the thickness of the crostini’s. Also use a serrated knife to cut the baguette.
  4. Place the crostini’s on a baking sheet in a single layer
  5. At the restaurant we use a spray bottle with oil in it to evenly coat something. If you don’t have a spray bottle, you can brush the oil on the crostini’s. Don’t saturate the bread
  6. Season the crostini’s with the salt and pepper
  7. Put the baking sheet into the oven and bake the crostini’s. It should take 8 to 10 minutes. To check, touch the middle of a crostini with your finger. You want to bake these more than you would when you’re making toast
  8. The crostini’s will hold for several days in an air tight container

While The Crostini’s are baking or in advance of baking them make the Black Truffle Butter

  1. Make sure to strain of the oil or water that the truffles are stored in
  2. Put the butter and anchovies in a food processor and pulse until smooth
  3. With a rubber spatula, scrape out the butter into a mixing bowl
  4. Take the black truffles and chop up until fine
  5. Fold and incorporate the truffles into the butter
  6. Spread on the crostini’s and serve
