2 TBS olive oil (approximate)

How to make Manchego & Serrano Crostini
A simple recipe I made for a tapas party. They were gone in minutes!
Saute garlic in olive oil until lightly browned. Strain garlic and discard. Or leave in if you like.
Slice baguette into 1/3" to 1/2" slices.
Slice manchego cheese. I like to slice the wedge horizontally so that each slice is the same shape.
Cut ham into pieces roughly the same size as the baguette slices.
Arrange baguette slices on a baking sheet.
Brush slices with olive oil.
Assemble crostini, with ham first then cheese.
Cook under broiler until until cheese is melted and ham is warm.
