Lawry's Crostini with white bean spread ingredients

This is a sponsored post.

***Be sure to scroll down for the awesome giveaway!***

I was recently approached by The Motherhood for an opportunity to get together with a few local bloggers as part of the “Fabulous Summer of Flavor” challenge and cook a meal together using Lawry’s products. Unfortunately, as is the life of busy moms and bloggers, we were unable to find a date that worked for all of us. So, we did the next best thing and had ourselves a virtual potluck. That’s the beauty of social media and blogging; we can get together without actually getting together! 😉

Our challenge was to collectively create a meal that fit the theme of “On the Go” and included the following Lawry’s products: Seasoned Salt, Balsamic Herb Marinade, and Seasoned Salt Marinade. Our Orlando team came up with an appetizer, main entree, and side dish that take about 40 minutes to prepare; not bad for a healthy, easy, and fast meal! Plus, the entree requires only THREE ingredients! After you check out these super simple recipes, be sure to scroll down for the chance to win some Lawry’s products, so that you too can create this quick and easy dinner!

Crostini with white bean spread, arugula and prosciutto

Appetizer: Crostini with white bean spread, arugula and prosciutto

by Leigh of ThemeParkMom.com and me! (ModernMami™.com)
(Makes 20-30 appetizers, depending on size of your baguette)
Prep time: 10 minutes or less

1 baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch thick slices
1 can cannelini beans (or other white bean, such as Great Northern)
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Baby arugula (about 1/2 cup)
Thinly-sliced prosciutto (about 1/4 pound)

1. Toast your bread slices on both sides. This can be done in an oven, or the Florida summer method, which doesn’t require heating up the oven: Heat a dry skillet over medium high heat. Add bread slices and toast for about 30 seconds per side. Watch closely so they don’t burn.
2.  Make the white bean spread. Drain the liquid from the can of beans. Add to a food processor and puree. Add olive oil, Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and pepper and process until well blended.
3. Assemble the crostini. Spread about 2 tsp. of the bean spread on each baguette. Top with 3-4 pieces of baby arugula and a small slice of the prosciutto.

I use Lawry’s rather than salt every time I brown hamburger for anything.


14 Anonymous August 19, 2011 at 1:41 pm

I like to marinade chicken in it, fry it up, and then slice or cube to use for salads, sandwiches, etc.


15 Dara Nix August 19, 2011 at 5:01 pm

I think that Lawry’s products can help me create an on-the-go meal by adding some ZING to quick prep meals like Hamburger Helper or frozen “meals in a bag)!  They NEVER seem to have enough seasoning!

22 Jessica August 20, 2011 at 12:23 am

I like to use Lawry’s seasoned salt to spice up any type of meat we make.  It makes even our boring food taste good!


23 Nicole August 20, 2011 at 5:17 am

I would use them with some of my awesome crock pot recipes. We use the leftovers to make yummy pizzas the next day.


24 dddiva August 20, 2011 at 5:27 pm

When you buy your chicken, chops or beef, put them in a zip top bag and then cover in marinade-  saves a ton of time and the flavor is amazing-  it seeps in as it defrosts and then you are good to grill, bake, etc.

I work M-F and am gone from the house at least 10 hrs (depending on traffic). I need something that I can marinate in the morning and be ready to throw in the oven by 5pm. Chicken is the best. I put a bunch of tenderloins in a bag and throw in some marinade and in 30 min it’s like I cooked all day. Thanks!

I can use your recipes with the seasonings on Sundays, so they will all ready be prepared, can take with me and just need to be heated.

Love to season pork and chicke with Lawerys products and put them on the grill. Simple and easy!


39 Sheila R August 22, 2011 at 8:41 am

Lawry’s adds spice and flavor to foods that would be dull otherwise.

The Lawry’s Seasoned Salt is great with raw vegetables with a sour cream accompaniment!
