Total Time: 17 minutes

Crispy toasted bread slices brushed with olive to use as a base for savory toppings.


  • 1/2 loaf baguette, sliced about 1/2 inch thick or less.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for brushing


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. this is also a great small-batch toaster oven recipe
    2. Slice the bread into thin slices, about 1/3 - 1/2 inch thick.  You want it thick enough to stand up to the topping yet thin enough not to overpower it. 
    3. Place the sliced bread on a baking sheet and bake until lightly brown and crisp, about 10 minutes. Both sides should be toasted.
    4. Remove from oven and brush lightly with olive oil.
    5. Let cool before serving.  If you are serving later then cover loosely with foil.
