Easy French Bread Crostini

Preheat the oven to 375 F. Slice a baguette on the diagonal into 1/2-inch rounds and arrange them on a parchment paper or foil-lined baking sheet. Put about 1/3 cup of olive oil in a cup. Brush olive oil on both sides of the bread slices. Sprinkle the slices lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 5 minutes. Turn and bake for another 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.

If desired, sprinkle the warm slices with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
