Updated: Feb 13, 2019

This quick and easy to make Italian toast is a great way to start a dinner or living up the party!

Prep time-10 min

Cook time- 20 min

Yield-12 slices, serves 4-6


  • 1lb cherry tomatoes, quartered (

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tbsp olive oil (extra 1/4 cup to coat bread)

  • 2 tsp fresh basil (about 6 basil leaves thinly sliced)

  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1 baguette French bread


1. Set your oven to 450F

2. Prepare tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, basil,

balsamic vinegar, salt & pepper and add to bowl. Cover bowl and set in the fridge while you prepare the bread. (You can make the tomato & basil mixture the night before to make it easier the day of)

3. Diagonally slice the French bread (or any similar Italian bread) to 1/4-1/2 inch size and brush one side of each piece of bread with the extra 1/4 cup of olive oil you set aside.

4. Set the bread on a baking tray (olive oil side DOWN! This is so when the bread is done and you top with the tomato & basil the bread doesn’t get soggy). Place bread in preheated oven, on the highest rack, for 5 minutes.

5. Remove bread, let cool slightly, top with tomato & basil mixture, and enjoy!
