You can really use any type of bread to make these tasty treats. Cutting slices from a large round loaf gives more of a wow factor.

Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 1/2 inch thick slices from a large round loaf of bread
  • Roma tomatoes
  • 3 cloves
  • 6 tablespoons
    extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 large
    fresh basil leaves
    salt, to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F with the rack in the middle. Arrange the bread on a cookie sheet.
  2. Press the garlic into a small bowl containing 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Stir the garlic into the oil and smear the mixture evenly onto the top sides of the bread slices with your fingertips.
  3. Toast the garlic bread until crisp and golden brown, about 20 minutes, turning the pan halfway through the baking. Remove from the oven and cool.
  4. Pare the ends of the tomatoes and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place them in a medium bowl and drizzle with the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt. Medium chop the basil and throw into the bowl with the tomatoes. Toss everything around until it’s all oil-coated.
  5. Arrange the tomato slices artfully atop the bread slices. Scrape the bowl with a spatula and make sure any remaining juice makes it onto the
    bruschetta. Serve with wine, some good cheese, or just solo – any time of day.
