Tip: If you can, open lid and check while kneading to feel whether the dough is too wet or dry.
Correct it with a tablespoon or so of water or flour if needed.

Crostini make great soup or salad accompaniments and can be made with day-old French or Italian bread. Cut the bread into 1/4-inch thick slices, brush one side with olive oil and broil about 30 seconds on each side or until crisp and golden brown. The olive oil can be seasoned with herbs, garlic or other flavorings.
