ZWT7, Italy. This simple dish can be served as breakfast, as a snack at any time, or as an accompaniment to lunch or dinner. It can be embellished with a topping of anchovies, or cheese.


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 5 minutes, or until golden and crisp. Remove from the oven and immediately.
  3. Rub 1 side of each slice with a cut side of the garlic, if desired. Then rub the same side of each slice with the cut side of a tomato half, pressing a little to squeeze some of the pulp and seeds onto the bread.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over the tomato and sprinkle with salt. Serve while the bread is still warm and crisp.

We enjoyed these a lot and love that they are so easy to make. I used pumpernickel bread, plum tomatoes, and garlic flavored olive oil. Grated some parmesan cheese on top and had a great tasting snack. Made and reviewed for the Game Forum's - I Recommend Tag Game.
