These work great with dip as an appetizer, or in soup. Be sure to make a lot because they tend to go very quickly!


  • 1 baguette
  • 1/4 cup good olive, plain or flavored with basil or garlic
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Slice the baguette diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • Depending on the size of the baguette, you should get about 20 to 25 slices.
  • Lay the slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil.
  • Sprinkly liberally with salt and pepper (I also add basil).
  • Sprinkle with shredded Parmesan.
  • Bake the toasts for 15 to 20 minutes until they are browned and crisp.
  • Serve at room temperature.
