I saw this recipe on Michael Chiarello's show awhile ago, and am so happy this recipe is here. It's great and a crowd pleaser too. A different twist on Bruschetta. I toast my bread in the oven and then top and bake. Try this one - it's a keeper!

A great way to use up some of my leftovers from Thanksgiving. The flavors blend perfectly!

This was a simple appy (and for me, an easy lunch). The flavors were all some of my favorites, and blended well. I used a whole wheat baguette that I sliced and toasted in the oven before rubbing with the clove of garlic. Topped with leftover cranberry sauce, this was an excellent way to use up some Thanksgiving leftovers.
