It's the best thing since sliced bread. This fresh bruschetta is topped with olive oil, basil and tomatoes makes a great accompaniment to traditional and non-traditional pasta dishes.
8" round "wheel" sour dough French bread loaf
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp. butter, melted
2-3 cloves garlic, finely minced
2-3 Italian tomatoes, cubed
Small bunch fresh basil, chopped
Salt to taste
Slice the bread and brush each half with a light coat of melted butter and a heavier coat of olive oil. Sprinkle on garlic and salt. Toast lightly in oven under broil setting (careful don't scorch the butter). Remove and immediately top with diced tomatoes and basil. Serve immediately.
