8 (3/4-inch-thick) slices crusty peasant bread, preferably from a large round loaf

3 garlic cloves, halved crosswise

6 tablespoons olive oil, preferably extra-virgin



  1. On a baking sheet toast the bread slices in batches under a preheated broiler about 3 inches from the heat for about 1 minute on each side, or until they are golden, transferring them as they are toasted to a work surface. Rub 1 side of each toast slice with the cut side of a garlic clove, brush it with some of the oil, and season it with salt.;
