DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare all ingredients just before planning to eat.
  • In a medium sized bowl combine the feta cheese, avocado, rocket, basil, pine nuts and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add an extra tablespoon of olive oil to further moisten this mixture if preferred.
  • Saute the bacon or pancetta in a little oil until crisp, then chop finely and add to the feta cheese/avocado mixture.
  • Set topping mixture aside while preparing the bread.
  • Toast the bread over hot coals (preferably), on the bbq or under the oven grill/broiler, until crusty and golden brown on the outside, but warm and soft inside. Keep an eye on it as it can suddenly burn!
  • While the toast is still piping hot, rub one side of each slice with the cut side of a garlic clove, then quickly brush each slice with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • Spoon the topping mixture on to the toasted bread, and season with freshly cracked black pepper - depending on the saltiness of the feta and bacon you use, you probably won't need to season with salt.
  • Serve immediately.
