  • Yields: 10-12 Servings


1 Large Baguette, (cut into 12 1/4 -inch slices)

1/2 lb Ground American lamb

1/2 tsp Dried oregano

Kosher salt and freshly ground to taste

2 cups Marinara sauce

8 oz. Whole-milk Ricotta cheese

1 cup Parmesan cheese, (divided)

1 cup shredded mozzarella

Fresh basil, (for garnish)


1Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

2Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and cook until slightly golden, about 8 minutes. Set the sheet pan aside.

3In a large skillet preheat to medium-high heat, add the ground lamb. Using a wooden spoon, break up the lamb and cook until the internal temperature of 160 degrees F is reached*.

4Next, add in the dried oregano, Kosher salt, pepper, and marinara sauce. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes.

5In a medium bowl combine 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and Ricotta cheese. Take this mixture and spread it on top of each crostino. Next, top the cheese mixture with some of the lamb sauce followed by remaining Parmesan cheese and Mozzarella. Return the crostini to the oven and let the cheese melt for about 5 minutes.

6Remove from the oven and place on a platter. Garnish with fresh basil.


1USDA recommends ground lamb reach an internal temperature of 160F.
