Slice bread to 1/2-inch thick—any thinner and your bread might fall apart.
- bread, sliced
- olive oil
- Also needed: baking sheet, parchment paper (optional), silicone brush
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easier clean-up (optional).
Lightly brush both sides of each slice with olive oil. This is usually about 2 to 3 Tablespoons of oil for a sheetful of toasts.
Arrange slices in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and bake them on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Bake for 6 to 9 minutes until they’re crisped and golden brown. Turn half way through.
Sprinkle the toasts lightly with salt. Transfer the toasts to a serving platter, if desired, and top with smoked salmon salad.
- 4 ounces smoked salmon
