This is incredibly rich and cheesy. People can pick up their little gratins, sprinkle on the topping of their choice and savour the flavour combinations. Some of my family's favourite toppings include crumbled bacon, sautéed garlic breadcrumbs, chopped lobster meat, extra cheese, salsa and chopped Italian sausage.

Otherwise, you can nibble on the crostini with a pre-dinner drink.
