Farmhouse Ham Chowder

For a special treat, Grandma served this chowder with her crispy cheese toasts. To make them, she placed slices of crusty French bread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Then she drizzled a bit of olive oil over the surface of each slice and rubbed it in lightly with her fingertips. A sprinkle of grated Parmesan or shredded Swiss cheese and sometimes a dash of dried basil topped off each slice. Grandma popped the slices under the broiler, and in just minutes they were toasted and melted.
