Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 12 crostini


  • 6 strips bacon cut into small pieces
  • 12 baguette slices (about 1/2"-3/4" thick)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or to taste
  • 1 cup cooked chicken (I used rotisserie) or to taste
  • Romaine lettuce to taste, torn into small pieces
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese to taste
  • Caesar salad dressing to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • If you want a homemade Caesar dressing, here's my recipe. Otherwise, use your favorite bottled variety.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Cut the bacon into small pieces (I find this easiest using kitchen shears). Fry it in a skillet until crispy.
  • Meanwhile, you can prep your other ingredients. Cut the baguette into even-thickness slices and brush both sides with the olive oil. You may need to add more oil if you run out, but 1/4 cup is a good start without wasting any.
  • Bake the crostini for 10-15 minutes or until they're as crispy as you want. 15 minutes made them really crispy (like croutons). You can flip them halfway through if you want even color.
  • Take the crostini out of the oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes. Top them with the lettuce, chicken, Caesar dressing, bacon, parmesan, and salt & pepper. Serve immediately.


  • You can do a lot of the prep while the bacon cooks/the bread is crisping up in the oven, so I indicated prep time as a bit less than I would otherwise. Recipe will take longer if you make the Caesar dressing from scratch.
  • The recipe easily doubles, and the quantities I recommend are merely suggestions. Feel free to add more/less chicken or any other ingredient to suit your individual tastes.
