1 long French stick of bread
3 tbsp butter, softened or olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
a few washed and chopped herbs such as garlic flowers, fresh thyme, sage, chervil
1 tsp dried thyme, for added flavour
Cut the baguette into 2cm thick slices at an angle.
In a small bowl, mix the butter or oil, garlic and herbs together.
Using a knife, apply about half a teaspoon of the herby mixture on each side of the bread slice.
Heat a frying pan on a medium heat. Place the buttered or oiled bread slices in the pan and cook on a low to medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side until the butter has melted and the toast is lightly golden.
