Whether you are serving your favorite dips, spreads, cheeses, or just about anything that calls for putting it on a cracker these toasted thins will add taste and elegance to the presentation.  Try variations by using your own herb and spice combination to flavor the bread.  This is sure to impress your friends.

1-12" crusty French baguette
cup   olive oil
1 teaspoon   dried basil
2 cloves   garlic, pressed
pinch   salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the oil with the salt, basil and garlic and set aside for about a half hour.  Using a very sharp serrated knife thinly slice (1/8" to 1/4") the baguette into wafers (the oil should be enough for about 30 wafers.)  Lightly brush the wafers on each side with the flavored oil and lay out on a large baking sheet.  Place in oven and allow to toast until crisp.  About ten minutes turning the wafers halfway through.  Set aside to cool.
