Ingredients

  • Salt and pepper
  • 24 (1/2-inch-thick) slices baguette bread

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel

Directions

Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the bread slices. Grill the bread until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
