Description

The current toast trend owes a lot to bruschetta, the age old Italian original that takes thick slices of rustic bread that have been brushed with olive oil and crisped in the oven and then layers on flavorful toppings for serving with an aperivito (and also for lunch). The topping here is a hearty mix of broiled chicken and zucchini plus arugula that's layered on sliced mozzarella, with oregano and olive oil the last minute garnishes.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bread (thick)
  • olive oil
  • oregano
  • 1 garlic cloves

  5. Remove bread from the oven, and spread minced garlic on it.
