This is a custom French summer dish that I tweaked slightly. The entire thing cost me $4 to make $2 for a French Baguette and $2 for some tomatoes. Easy, cheap and delicious ?! Okay now! This is also perfect for warming up at work for leftovers! The bread stays crispy and it tastes amazing!
- 4-5 medium size tomatoes
- 1 Baguette, either 1 large one or probably 2 small (Can also use whole grain bread)
- Olive Oil
- Fresh Basil, Parsley and Thyme (If you don’t have thyme, just go with basil and parsley!)
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 sweet onion ( I just used half of one)
- Parmesan cheese
- Salt, pepper, red crushed pepper and Italian seasoning
- Baking dish
- Preheat oven for 425 degrees. Slice your tomatoes thin, you can probably get at least 6 slices out of one tomato.
- Place tomatoes in bowl, season with salt, pepper, red crushed pepper, Italian seasoning and stir. Place tomatoes in rows in baking dish.
- Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over tomatoes.
4. Take baguette and cut into small cubes, put in a medium mixing bowl.
5. Chop your basil and parsley and put in bowl along with Thyme.
6. Finely dice your onion and mince garlic, add to bowl.
7. Season bowl mixture with salt and pepper, then pour in olive oil. You want bread coated evenly in the oil, so pour at your own discretion. This allows the bread to become crispy.
8. Toss the cubed baguette in the fresh herbs, oil and seasoning.
9. Pour bread over tomatoes and use anything left in the bowl to drizzle over top.
10. Bake for 25-30 minutes, around 20 minutes check that your bread is golden and not burning…everyone’s oven cooks differently so better to be on teh safe side.
11. Serve and enjoy!
