Ingredients

  • 1 sourdough baguette (get one with some chew not all soft that will fall apart)
  • 2-3 fresh ripe tomatoes (home grown or heirloom if possible)
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil (I've been using garlic flavored)
  • fresh basil
  • herbs and spices to taste
  • grated cheese (parmesan, romano or whatever you have)

Directions

  • Slice baguette into 1/4" slices
  • Brush lightly with olive oil and lightly toast for 2-3 minutes in a low oven
  • Slice tomatoes into 1/4" slices that will fit on your baguette slices
  • Marinate the tomatoes in the remaining olive oil with whatever spices you like for at least 20 minutes
  • Arrange the bread on a tray or serving platter, spoon some of the marinade over each slice
  • Tear the basil to fit on each slice of bread, top with a tomatoe slice
  • Spoon remaining marinade over each piece or serve in a bowl for people to dip into
  • Sprinkle a little bit of cheese over the top and serve!
