  • 1 french baguette
  • 1/4 cup Olive oil
  • 1/4 TBSP Coarse salt


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Slice the french baguette bread in 1/4 inch slices
  • Take a large sheet pan and lay flat all the slices of bread
  • Brush each slice with olive oil
  • Sprinkle coarse salt over the sliced bread and flip over each slice of bread
  • Brush the other side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt
  • Bake for 7 minutes and pull out bread and flip each slice and put back in the oven for another 7 minutes or until the bread has a nice golden color



  • Day old bread works the best, but using day of bread works too
  • If you want longer slices, slice them at an angel
  • Use coarse salt instead of regular table salt
  • For even toasting flip the bread half way through cooking
  • Keep an eye on it when it gets close to the end cook time to not over cook
  • Store in an air tight container for up to 3 days
