Parmesan Toasts

Today's post is going to be short and sweet, just like the time it takes to make this recipe!

Sometimes when I make a meal, I want a side dish to go with it but I feel like I already put so much work into the main dish that I don't want to actually MAKE anything else to go with it. That's the great thing about these toasts because it took the least amount of energy and time to make these delicious little toasts.

It's a great recipe to spruce up a baguette, and add an extra piece to your dinner spread. These are best served fresh out of the oven alongside the meal.
