Stale bread

serves 4

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice bread into about 1/4 inch thick slices.

Spread the sliced bread out on a baking sheet with sides. Lightly brush top side with olive oil.

Sprinkle each slice with some salt and a grind or two of pepper. (This is when you could also rub the bread with fresh garlic and/or add a tiny sprinkle of dried oregano)

Sprinkle a small amount of cheese on each slice.

Bake for 9-14 minutes depending on how crispy you like your cheesy toast rounds.
