When we lived in Barcelona we used to eat this all the time. Warning! Everyone has to eat this. If you don't the garlic smell will drive you out of the room. We bought a garlic jar in Spain for seasoning the garlic to make the taste a bit more concentrated. It's basically a ceramic jar with holes in the back to keep the garlic out of the light so it doesn't sprout, but the holes in the back allow the garlic to dry, in order to concentrate the flavor. It works fantastic and keeps garlic for 2 to 3 months.

  • Toast bread slices until golden and crunchy, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Rub toasted bread with garlic cloves until evenly covered; rub with cut side of tomato until evenly covered. Spread olive oil evenly over slices with a pastry brush or by hand. Season with salt and pepper.

Bread can be toasted in a toaster instead of under an oven broiler, if desired.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

Simple! I chop garlic in super small pieces. Add 2 a coffee cup with butter, olive oil and garlic powder (u can add fresh or dried parsley too). Micro all, a little longer 2 blend flavors. I spread with a mixrowavable brush so i can leave it in the cup when it goes in the fridge 4 the next time i use it. If u don't like the smell in your fridge, put the whole thing in a container that will cover it all tightly. Toast any bread and melt the butter in the coffee cup in the micro, spread on toast 4 a SUPER HEALTHY SNACK ANYTIME!!! Read More

I toast my bread in a cast iron pan. It is strange that one star was given to this delicious recipe. If there is anything left to the tomato after rubbing on the toast, you could simply eat it! Read More

Delicious and easy recipe indeed, but the author, "Dangerous Chef", is well-named given the recommendation to use parchment paper. DO NOT USE parchment paper in the broiler (or a toaster oven)!!! It can catch fire (most broilers are way over 451 degrees Fahrenheit; in addition, any contact with the heating element will result in immediate fire)! Use aluminum foil instead. Read More
