Topped with only garlic and oil, this is the most simple and rustic version of the famous Italian appetizer.
- 4 slices rustic, country-style bread
- 1 clove of garlic
- ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper to taste
On a grill, grill pan or in the oven, toast the thickly-sliced bread until it is nicely golden.
Then peal the garlic and rub it on the bread so that it releases its aroma.
Arrange the bread on one or two serving dishes, then season with salt and, if you want, pepper.
Drizzle generously with extra virgin olive oil.
Serve the bruschetta while the bread is still hot.
This simple and rustic preparation is popular in central Italy.
