Crackers are an easy base for the spreads and toppings on the preceding pages. But these breads are special. These can be cooled and stored in an airtight container for two days.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 long, thin baguette, sliced a generous 1/4 -inch thick
- Olive oil (optional)
Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 375 degrees. Lay bread slices on a large wire rack or cookie sheet. If you like, brush or drizzle with oil. Bake until golden and crisp throughout, 10 to 12 minutes; if using a cookie sheet, turn midway.
