Thanks Doris! This was an easy and fun addition to my Italian appetizer theme. The house smelled great and I used the dried herb (oregano) and sprinkled some fresh rosemary as well. The fresh garlic and olive oil complemented the feta cheese which was slightly gooey but still in its little crumbles. It looked great too. It got eaten up quickly. Enjoy! ChefDLH

We love breads like this. I used italian bread slices, not the boboli. I mixed the garlic, oil, fresh ground pepper with the herbs all together. (I used oregano and basil) I spread this mixture onto the slices and sprinkled the tomato and gorgonzola cheese on top. I baked them for a few minutes in the oven. It was heavenly, not to mention the wonderful aroma from the garlic. I intend to use the boboli bread next time and will sprinkle the herbs as directed in the recipe. This is a keeper, thanks Doris!
