Toasted Parmesan Tomato Bread – August 6th


I found this recipe on Yahoo from a blogger named J. M. Hirsch, he blogs at Lunch Box Blues. Really neat recipes over there. So I this recipe last weekend and it was so good! Super easy and fast to make. Hope you all enjoy.

Toasted Parmesan Tomato Bread by J. M. Hirsch

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large sprig fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 tbsp kosher salt
Ground black pepper
4 large, thick slices of sourdough bread
4 large tomatoes
3 oz Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to broil.

In a small, sturdy bowl, combine the garlic, rosemary, olive oil, salt and black pepper, to taste. Mix well, then use the back of a heavy spoon to mash the garlic and rosemary together to form a paste. This also can be done using a mortar and pestle or mini food processor. The rosemary won’t mash well, this is fine.

Spread a quarter of the mixture over one side of each slice of bread.

Slice 2 thick slabs out of the center of each tomato. Reserve the tops and bottoms for another use. Set 2 slabs over each piece of bread. Shave some of the Parmesan over the tomatoes on each slice. Set the assembled bread on a baking sheet and broil on the ovens middle rack until cheese is just starting to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

This went over really big at my house, very tasty. Loved the mix of all the flavored together.

Have a blessed evening!
