From the Test Kitchen*
  • To toast bread slices, preheat broiler. Brush one side of each bread slice with some of 1 tablespoon olive oil. Place bread slices, oil sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat about 15 seconds or until toasted (watch carefully to avoid burning). Sprinkle bread slices with some of 2 tablespoons finely shredded Parmesan cheese. Broil about 15 seconds longer or until cheese is melted.
