Bruschetta 4 Ways

Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. 

BRUSCHETTA

• 1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread

Preheat your oven to 230°C. Cut the bread of choice on the diagonal making 2cm thick slices. Brush one side of each slice with a generous amount of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and place the olive oil-side down on a baking sheet or roasting pan. Once your oven is preheated, toast slices for 5–6 minutes on the top-most oven rack until browned around the edges.
