Have cibatta bread to make crostini with tonight but looking for a less-than-conventional topping... not the traditional bruschetta. Ideas?

Try this! I just made it and gave out samples at Whole Foods this week (photo coming soon): http://montclair.wholefoodsmarketcooking...

goat cheese, fresh figs, and honey?

What about a hybrid of the two... think the figs and honey would pair well with the ricotta? If no, i like something with ricotta, but feeling that the fruit won't go over with some of the diners (i'd personally love it!)

That sounds like a great idea- maybe slice the figs and drizzle some honey on top. Could even work with a stronger cheese like brie or blue. Endless possibilities :)

This recipe uses mozzarella, roasted kohlrabi, lemons and shallots. So, so good!

I'm not sure what "traditional" means in this case. Bruschetta just means "burned" bread. You could top it with chicken livers, a combination of tuna and anchovies with maybe some olives and capers or even pork pate or rillettes. The bread is just the platform.

Mix together one peeled and pureed cucumber, one chopped cucumber, minced red-onion, diced red or yellow bell pepper, salt and a lot of course ground pepper. You can also add some vinegar for a little kick.

I use grilled mango and add some fontina cheese, zap quickly in the broiler and top with agave nectar or honey.

For me, Ciabatta bread has too much crust to make a good crostino. I think a baguette-style bread is more successful.

My favorite topping is whatever I have on hand, but I love it when that is caramelized onions and chicken (or duck) livers.

Carrot pesto - roasted carrots, a bunch of mint, a stick of ginger, almonds, etc...gorgeous and simple.

Thanks for all the great tips! As always, everything changed at the last minute. Ended up actually going with baguette (good call @chefJune). Topping was Fresh Ricotta, Marinated Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Cracked Black Pepper. See here: http://yfrog.com/kjm6vjiwj...

I will be trying many of these in the near future. @skittle 's suggestion of carmalized onions, grilled peaches and goat cheese sounds unbelievable. Thanks all!
