“These toasts are easy to make (perfect for using up day-old bread) and are the foundation for the recipe variations that follow,” says food personality Trish Magwood. Try Whipped Ricotta With Figs, Pistachio & Honey Toasts, Lemon Goat Cheese Toasts and Creamy Forest Mushroom Toasts.


  • 1⁄2 baguette
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Maldon sea salt (or salt of your choice)
