GREAT TREAT, for sure! I did use plain ol virgin olive oil & all the rest of the ingredienta listed & had a great-tasting snack! I can see these also as very nice appetizers, but on smaller bread ovals or rounds! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed while in Greece during the Zaar World Tour 4]
A great little appetiser that will probably taste even better when I use the right ingredients. I used slices of crusty olive loaf in place of the Italian bread and kalamatas, and stilton subbed for the gorgonzola. I did have fresh basil but only had plain olive oil, so I added some freshly cracked black pepper. Twelve minutes baking time resulted in beautifully crisped bread and melted cheese. Very good!
