 INGREDIENTS
1 baguette or similar long white loaf
2 cloves peeled garlic
1 drizzle olive oil
80g salami
100g semi-hard or soft cheese
1 small bunch fresh thyme
1 tsp runny honey

METHOD
  1. Cut the baguette into 1cm-thick slices. Place on a baking tray and rub the raw garlic clove gently on to one side of each slice.
  2. Drizzle over a little olive oil and grill at 180C for a few minutes, until the bread just starts to colour.
  3. Remove from the oven and carefully turn over each slice of bread. Tear the salami into pieces, and place on to each piece of bread. Cover with a slice of cheese. Scatter the thyme leaves over the crostini and crack over some black pepper. Return to the oven.
  4. Grill until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden. Remove from the oven and drizzle a little honey over the crostini.
