Gluten Free Cheesy Shrimp and Grits Crostini Recipe

I love crostini, but gluten free crostini can sometimes pose problems. Store-bought, gluten free baguettes are often filled with holes, making it so that the toppings fall through. So I am always looking for new ideas for the base of my crostini, such as this gluten free cheesy shrimp and grits crostini recipe.

Crostini literally means “little crusts” in Italian. They are usually small pieces of bread that have been toasted, grilled, or fried. For this recipe, I used ready-made polenta in a tube from Ancient Harvest, which I sliced and baked.

Not only do the polenta rounds make a great base for crostini, they also inspired me to do a fun take on shrimp and grits in appetizer form.

These little bites are tasty and easy to prepare. Perfect for your next gathering or party.
