These are sliced into the long thin toast strips because they are supposed to be sized for “dipping” in the soft yolk of the soft boiled egg. I have also seen people cut the toast into cute shapes to lay on the plate. However you decide to make your toast, it is delicious with the egg and pancetta!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Slice the baguette into thin rounds, and then slice the rounds in half. Lightly spread with butter and place on a cookie sheet. Toast in the oven for about 5 minutes or until golden brown.
