This crostini recipe is so simple to make, and yields delicious results, especially when topped with tomatoes.


  • 1 ficelle (8 to 10 ounces), sliced ¼ inch thick (60 slices)

  • ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bread slices on 2 rimmed baking sheets. Brush both sides of slices with oil, and season with salt and pepper.

  2. Bake until golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through (if undersides are not browning, turn crostini over once during baking). Let cool on baking sheets.
