If you were from Italy, you would call this tasty appetizer, ‘bru sket ti,’ toasted bread layered with a delicious mix of olive oil, garlic, Italian spices, and lots of fresh vine ripe tomatoes.
I can’t help myself when I see all my tomatoes turning bright red on the vine. I’m off to the store for fresh-baked baguette and basil.
2 Loaves of French bread, sliced
Salt to taste
2 lbs Roma tomatoes
½ c cup olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
3 cloves garlic, crushed through a press
¼ c fresh chopped basil
Salt to taste ~ ½-1 tsp
Dice tomatoes and marinate in the above mixture. It can sit on the counter for a few hours. (Avoid refrigerating it as the oil will harden).
Brush sliced bread with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic and salt; toast under broiler.
Spoon tomatoes on warm bread and serve!
