This is based on a recipe from The Tapas Cookbook. This serves 4 as part of a tapas meal. I haven’t yet tried this.
- 4 slices French bread
- 2 ripe tomatoes, halved
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped (optional)
- 2 tablespoons Spanish olive oil (optional)
- For soft bread, toast first by placing under a preheated broiler until lightly golden on both sides.
- Rub each slice of bread with half a fresh juicy tomato.
- Optionally, sprinkle chopped garlic over slices and drizzle with oil.
I really enjoyed this quick and easy to make bread mersaydees. I used a nice calabrese bun, which I halved, then I sliced the top and bottom off to leave the nice soft bread only. Toasted the slices a beautiful gold color. Rubbed a garlic clove over the top, then decided to add minced garlic on top of my squished tomaoto, which I then drizzled with a lovely olive oil. Forgot to mention that I did season it with coarse sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. Soooo yummy. Thanks for sharing. made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT-8 - Family Picks Round
A lovely Sunday afternoon appey! I toasted the bread first under the boiler, then placed slice of tomato on top, my tomatoes were not smooshie enough, then sprinkled garlic and olive oil, and sprinkled some salt and pepper over, put them under the broiled again just to heat the tomato a bit. Also did some with swiss cheese melted on top. Very tasty, thanks for posting, I will make these again.
I love this recipe and we enjoyed it to complete our lunch today.<br/>It's interesting in how many variations we can find this in Mediterannean Countries. <br/>Today this is served as tapas, but not many years ago this was "the meal" using toasted "old" bread with the addition of tomatoes and olive oil, <br/>With good tomaoes and oilve oil this is excellent!
