    Very good , it was a last minute addition to our meal but were so glad we added  -  09 Oct 2013


    These are an absolute staple in our house, like butter or milk (or wine)! I don't use butter, however. I brush both sides of the thinly sliced baguette lightly with the olive oil. Turn them once, half way through baking. You're not limited to fresh garlic either - just sea salt is nice, sea salt and fresh ground pepper, grated Parmesan cheese, or even California-Style garlic salt. Just plain would probably be good too! I guess we use these for just about anything and everything you'd use chips or crackers for! These keep well in a sealed container and are so much better than the thick, stale things you buy at the store!  -  16 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was flawless. Will go with ANY topping. Followed recipe exactly and used a French Bread recipe also from this site.  -  08 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
