- 1 narrow Italian or French loaf of bread
- 1 head garlic, cut in 1/2 crosswise
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- Kosher salt and pepper
Preheat oven on broiler setting. Place a rack approximately 6 inches from broiler.
Slice the loaf of bread, on the bias, into 3/4-inch slices. Place bread in oven on sheet pan and broil until golden brown on both sides, approximately 2 minutes for the first side and 1 to 1 1/2 for second side. Remove to a platter and rub each slice of bread with the garlic and then brush with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
