olive oil and basil toasted bread

In Toronto, ACE Bakery is famous for its european-style artisan bread. It's a bit pricier but well worth it. You can find it in most grocery stores. This recipe is extremely simple. If you're looking to make boring bread more interesting then try this out. You can serve it plain but it also works well as an appetizer when served with cheese, spreads, or bruschetta.

Here's what you'll need for about 15 slices:
  • 2 small ACE Bakery baguettes
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • dry basil
  • sea salt (optional)
Prep work (about 5 minutes):
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Cut the bread into slices about 1 cm thick.
Here's what to do (about 5 minutes):
  1. Place the slices of bread on a baking sheet.
  2. With a brush, spread olive oil evenly on all slices.
  3. Sprinkle dry basil on all slices.
  4. Dust sea salt sparingly on all slices (if serving with cheese or a spread then I usually skip the salt).
  5. Flip all slices and repeat steps 2-5.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 F.
