Serves 4people
Ingredients
1/2
of a 1 lb. loaf of french bread
3
tbsps. butter, soft
pinch of garlic powder or garlic granules
4
roma/plum tomatoes, seeded, diced
1/3
cup red onion, minced
2
tsps. (4 cloves) garlic, minced
1/4
cup fresh basil, chopped
2
tbsps. e.v. olive oil
2
tsps. balsamic vinegar
1/4
tsp salt
1/8
tsp black pepper
1
ripe avocado, pitted mashed
2
tsps. lime juice
1/4
tsp cayenne (optional)
1/8
tsp salt
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and place rack in the middle.
2.
Slice the bread in half, then slice in 1 inch thick pieces. I used French bread, not baguette for this, so the bread is bigger.
3.
Put 3 Tbsps. butter on a plate and microwave 15 seconds to soften and season with a pinch of garlic powder or granules.
4.
Butter both sides of each slice of bread and place on a baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until toasty. I flipped each piece and rearranged a couple of the pieces 7 minutes into baking.
5.
Place the tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a bowl and give a gentle stir.
6.
In another bowl, mash the avocado with a spoon and mix in the lime juice and salt.
7.
When the bread is done, allow it to cool 5 minutes.
8.
Spread the mashed avocado on each slice of bread, placing each piece back on the sheet.
9.
Turn broiler on.
10.
Top each piece of bread with the tomato mixture, draining a little bit of the liquid.
11.
Stack 6 slices of provolone on top of each other and cut in half.
12.
Top with a half slice of provolone.
13.
Broil 1 minute or until cheese melts. Do not walk away from the oven. Stay put and watch, so you don't burn these glorious pieces of heaven.
14.
Devour!
