Ingredients

  • 1 baguette, sliced into 24 diagonal slices, each about 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/3 cup flavorless vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoon sugar

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Arrange baguette slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5 minutes.  Turn slices over and using a pastry brush, brush each slice lightly with vegetable oil.  Sprinkle each slice with ¼ teaspoon sugar.  Return baking sheet to oven and toast an additional 5 to 10 minutes until lightly brown.  Let cool completely.

Wash and finely dice strawberries.  In a large bowl, combine strawberries with mint and 2 tablespoons of sugar and let stand at room temperature about 30 minutes or until syrupy.

Top each baguette slice with a heaping tablespoon of the strawberry mixture and pour any additional syrup over the slices.  Serve immediately.
