Use a good quality bread such as artisan, Italian, Sour Dough, or Baguette. Slice on a diagonal, place on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Place in a 425 degree oven and lightly toast. Approximately 5-6 minutes. You want it to be slightly chewy. Remove from oven and rub each slice with a clove of garlic and sprinkle with kosher salt. Yum! Eat plain of top with some favorite dips.
