Toasted baguette slices are simple to make and useful in so many ways.

In just 20 minutes, you can have hot and crispy crostini that are perfect for soups (skip the crackers), excellent when crumbed up on salads (no need for croutons), and the perfect vehicle for your next dip.

If you ever wondered how to toast a baguette, it’s as easy as bread and butter (or, to my taste, bread and olive oil). Just slice the baguette on the bias, brush with your favorite fat, and bake in a 400 degree oven.

The best way to toast baguette slices is in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. I personally don’t use parchment paper or a silicone mat for these.

You can use standard French bread too, if that’s your favorite. If you use the wider loaves of Italian bread, consider cutting the slices in half so they are more manageable.

Use your toasted baguette for bruschetta, Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Hot Swiss Cheese and Bacon Dip, and all your favorite soups. I also love Toasted Baguette slices on the side of pasta or with my bowl of my favorite meat sauce.

  1. Love that you posted this, Megan – we serve toasted bread with our meals all the time, and we always brush with olive oil not butter. Oh, and don’t forget the little sprinkle of salt.

    Great idea to grill baguette slices on the grill. :-)
