Literally this is Italian for ‘little toasts’ and consist of toasted bread with savoury toppings.
Cut a small narrow loaf such as a baguette into slices, about 1 cm (½ inch) thick. Spread with a garlic soft cheese, such as Boursin, top with a slice of tomato and some sliced olives, sprinkle with grated cheese and place on a piece of Bake-O-Glide on a baking tray. Place direct on the floor of the Roasting Oven toast and grill for about 8-10 minutes. Serve garnished with watercress.
For more variations:
• Spread with a little pesto in place of the Boursin
• Top with tomato slice, season and cover with goats cheese
• Brush the bread both sides with olive oil and toast uncovered then serve spread with tapenade topped with Parma ham and a basil leaf
