What do with leftover French bread? Simple – make crostini! These little rounds of sliced bread make for the perfect salad side, snack or dipping device. We always make these when we’ve forgot to finish off a baguette and then bread is starting to get a little too hard; don’t risk a broken tooth, make crostini!
Cut your bread into roughly 1/4 inch slices. Add to a deep bowl and coat liberally in olive oil. Normally I’d advise against olive oil at 400F (it can burn above 350 or so), but here the cooking time is short enough.
Next liberally salt and season with your preferred herbs and spices. I like a good dusting in roasted garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper. Cook as detailed above and enjoy piping hot (be safe!) or even cold.
I also like to add a little more olive oil to them once plated too.
