Nordstrom Parmesan Garlic Crostini is crunchy, garlicky and cheesy and is always served with Nordstrom’s famous Tomato Basil Soup.
If you are going to eat Nordstrom Tomato Basil Soup, then you’ll need Nordstrom Parmesan Garlic Crostini. They are partners in crime.
You just can’t have one without the other. Kind of like “Love and Marriage.” Horse and carriage…got it?
Thank you to Nordstrom for providing this recipe. I’ve been pretty keen on Fresh Asiago for a while now, so, I took the liberty of using Asiago Cheese, instead of Parmesan.
Since I wanted to convert the famous Nordstrom Tomato Basil Soup recipe, I had to make these Nordstrom’s Parmesan Garlic Crostini too. Why? “Love and Marriage.”
You can buy a Baguette, or make it yourself using my Country Sourdough Bread recipe.
Fresh is best, really. This beautiful Parsley is from my garden. My husband grows it; he has the green thumb, not me. 🙂
If you cannot get fresh Parley, sub with some Freeze Dried Parsley.
Use a Hand Grater to shred your Asiago or Parmesan Cheese. Combine it well with the Butter spread. A fresh block of cheese works well. The pre-shredded have a cornstarch coating and is usually kind of dried out.
Generously spread the Garlic Parmesan Butter mixture onto the Baguette Slices. Place them on a Half Sheet Cookie Sheet and into the oven they go.
Nordstrom Parmesan Garlic Crostini are begging to sit next to a hot bowl of Nordstrom Tomato Basil Soup (recipe will be posted in a few hours). I like to submerge one Crostini in y bowl of soup!
They also pair well with Pressure Cooker Split Pea Soup.
