Beef Filet Crostini

Beef tenderloin is the star of this elegant appetizer. Zesty horseradish sauce and nutty slivers of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese help create a superstar nibble.

Serves: 32 | Difficulty: Medium

  • 32 slices French baguette (¼”), about ⅔ of a 12 oz. baguette
  • 3 Tbsp. Kroger® Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 lb. beef tenderloin roast
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. Kroger® Garlic Powder
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 2 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 2 cups loosely packed baby arugula
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Place bread slices on large cookie sheet. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons olive oil and garlic powder; brush over bread slices.
  2. Bake 8-11 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned. Remove to cooling rack. Increase oven temperature to 425°F.
  3. Rub surface of tenderloin with remaining olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; place on baking sheet. Roast 20-25 minutes or until internal temperature is 135°F for medium rare or 145°F for medium (temperatures rise 10 degrees while resting); cover loosely with foil and set aside to rest 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, horseradish and mustard. Cover and refrigerate. With vegetable peeler, shave large curls of cheese from narrow edge of cheese.
