Crostini Thai Mexican Style

Lynn Socko


Don't forget the bacon grease. As I was sampling these, and yes I had three of them, I kept wondering what was so incredibly flavorful....finally dawned on me it was the bacon grease I had brushed on the bottom of the bread. Olive oil will of course work fine, but live a little and use bacon grease!
