Dark and hearty pumpernickel bread shines in this easy appetizer. These toasted garlic-pumpernickel crisps are the perfect complement to our Halloween-themed Cheddar Cheese Ball, or any cheese and charcuterie board.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in salt. Brush both sides of bread slices with garlic mixture. Transfer to a baking sheet. Toast bread in oven until crisp, turning once, 12 to 15 minutes.
