Holiday Baguette Crisps

Holiday preparations are certainly underway here at Casa de Kitchen Witch! I've got my tree trimmed, the decorations out, scented candles everywhere, and I just picked up four beautiful poinsettias this afternoon.

Over the next few weeks most of my free time will be spent in the kitchen and I wouldn't have it any other way. I will be making all kinds of wonderful goodies to give away as gifts, easy and delicious appetizers, and all kinds of delicious sweet treats!

To get things started, though, here is an easy to make holiday snack that is a great replacement for potato chips or processed crackers.

Ingredients
  • 1 large baguette loaf
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup shredded, aged white cheddar cheese (or other favourite cheese of your choice)
Directions

1. Slice the baguette into thin slices (about 1/2 inch each)
2. Mix the garlic, salt, and olive oil together and brush baguette slices on both sides with the oil mixture.
3. Bake in a pre-heated 350 oven for 10-12 minutes until cheese is bubbly and the baguette slices are toasted and crispy.
4. Turn the oven heat off and leave in for another 15 minutes to crisp further. Serve in place of crackers or chips.
