Avocado and Radish Baltic Crostini

Throughout the Baltic region thin slices of Baltic Rye topped with smoked fish or ham and a bit of garnish are cut into small wedges and served as hors d'oeuvres. We call these tasty bites Baltic Crostini.

Our signature Baltic Crostini recipe was created by Black Rooster founder John Melngailis and it has become a foodie favorite.
