1 French bread
1 tablespoon minced garlic
Salt on taste
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons melted butter
┬Ż teaspoon grounded dried red peppers

How to prepare?
Cut down the baguette into 4 parts – from the bottom to the top and then cut each piece in half. Mix the butter, salt, lemon garlic and pepper. Spread the mixture over the bread. Lightly toast under broiler or preheat the oven to 450┬░F and bake until golden brown.
You can substitute the butter with an olive oil. Feel free to choose onion instead of garlic. If you do not have baguette, opt for normal bread cut in slices.
