Crispy Bread with Tomato and Asiago.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices of crusty bread
  • 1 large garlic clove peeled
  • 8 cherry tomatoes or 4 regular tomatoes halved
  • Flaked sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Shaved Asiago or Parmesan cheese, about 4-5 generous shavings per slice
  • Olive oil for serving

Instructions

  • Lay the bread slices on a baking sheet and toast in a 375 degree oven for about 5 minutes per side, until just golden. Don’t overtoast or it’ll be difficult to eat!
  • After the bread has toasted, remove the pan from the oven. Gently rub the garlic clove evenly over the slices.
  • Rub the tomatoes generously over the slices. The insides of the tomato will mush and smear into the bread and you’ll be left with the skin at the end of it all. Discard. Repeat the tomato smooshing until each slice of bread is coated in all that pink hued tomato magic. If you’d like, you can incorporate a few small pieces of the tomato to make it look prettier.
  • Now, all we’ve got to do is top with a bit of flaked sea salt and pepper…
  • … a lay our Asiago cheese shavings over the top…
  • … before diagonally slicing the bread for easier consumption...
  • … and drizzling ever so slightly with olive oil before serving
