Recipe by Charlotte J

Here is a simple idea for a grilled snack. In addition to the olive oil and garlic this grilled bread snack gets a kick from red pepper flakes.

I really liked the flavor of this bread, but I agree it's not really a bruschetta, but it is very tasty. I liked the idea of cooking the garlic in the oil before adding to the bread. Thanks for sharing.

  1. Slice the garlic cloves lengthwise into paper-thin slices.
  2. Warm a small skillet over a medium flame.
  3. Add the 1/3 cup olive oil and the garlic.
  4. Stirring constantly, cook until the garlic is aromatic and golden (don't let it brown, as it will be bitter).
  5. Remove the skillet from the flame and stir in the chili or red pepper flakes and parsley.
  6. Cover and set aside.
  7. Grill the bread on both sides until lightly browned and crisp, then sprinkle with olive oil.
  8. Spoon the garlic-olive oil mixture over each slice.
  9. Serve immediately.
