Ingredients

  • 4 slices country bread 1/2 in. thick

How to make the Bruschetta Romana:

Take a few shallow cuts across the surface of the bread slices, and then place them on the grill to toast. They should be golden and uniformly toasted. As soon as they are ready rub the surface with a clove garlic, drizzle with oil, salt, pepper and serve immediately.

A variation of this recipe for bruschettta is to top the bread with a chopped fresh ripe tomato with basil.
