"This recipe was in the Australian Womens Weekly Italian cookbook. This crostini recipe is really good. My friends love them. I usually keep some toast rounds on hand so I can make them up in a hurry. Serve them at a cocktail party or as an appetizer before dinner. I make up a batch of the anchovie mix split it into four separate servings, place each in small plastic bag & freeze for future use"
