Toast points are a versatile base for all kinds of appetizers and hors d’oeuvres.
- 1 loaf good quality white bread, thinly-sliced
- Unsalted butter, room temperature
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Trim the crusts off and slice the bread in halves on the diagonal, twice, to form four (4) triangles; set the bread on a baking sheet, brush one side with the butter.
Place the bread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Toast the bread until it is golden brown and crisp on top, about 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side until golden, about 1 minute. Remove from oven and cool the “points” on a baking rack.
Toast Points can be made up to a day ahead; store them in an airtight container.
