Olive Oil Toast


  • a few slices of stale bread
  • olive oil
  • nice salt, such as Maldon or Fleur de Sel
  • crushed red pepper flakes, optional

Note: If you want to doll this toast up a bit, spread it with a soft cheese (goat is nice) and top with arugula. No need to dress the arugula.


  1. Coat a cast iron skillet with a nice layer (go big) of oil. Place bread slices in a single layer over top. Heat over medium heat until bread is golden, about five to eight minutes. Flip. Season with nice salt (and chili flakes if using). Heat until second side is golden.
  2. Remove from heat. Eat.
