1baguette (8 to 10 ounces) sliced into 1/4 to 3/8 inch slides, this should yield 40 to 60 slices
1/2cupolive oil or 1 stick of butter
Preheat oven to broil.
Slice bread into 1/4 to 3/8 inch slices, and place sliced bread onto a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle half of the olive oil over the sliced bread.
Use a pastry brush to brush out olive oil evenly. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Place into oven, the bread should brown in one to two minutes. Remove baking sheet from oven. Flip bread over, drizzle with remaining oil, and brush out olive oil evenly.
Place baking sheet back into the oven and allow bread to brown, this should only take about one minute. Allow bread to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
For variety, you can rub a cut piece of garlic onto the bread after it has been toasted. You may also want to consider using a flavored oil to brush onto these when cooking them.
