An authentic Italian recipe from our kitchen to yours. Buon Appetito!


- 1 medium loaf rustic bread

- 2 medium cloves garlic, peeled

- Extra virgin olive oil

- Salt


1.  Cut the loaf of bread into 1/2 inch thick slices.

2.  There are several ways to toast the bruschette:

 a.  If you are using the oven, preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the bread slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Put the baking sheet in the oven on the top rack and bake for 4 minutes on each side or until toasted to a golden brown.



 b.  Preheat a grill pan or grill. Place the bread on the grill for about 30 seconds to 1 minute on either side until toasted to a golden brown.

 c.  Place the bread slices in a toaster and toast to a golden brown.

3.  Once all of the bread is toasted, take one clove of garlic and rub it across one side of each slice of bread. The clove will gradually wear down as you rub it over the slices. Use the second clove of garlic if you use the entire first clove.

4.  Drizzle all slices of bread with a small amount of olive oil and a small pinch of salt.

5.  Serve hot.
