pesto toasts



812 slices of your favorite bread (less if larger)

34 tablespoons olive oil

1 to 1 1/2 cups broccoli pesto, from above

Other toppings of your choice (Sriracha-roasted mushrooms and halved fresh cherry tomatoes or sundried tomatoes are our favorite)

812 slices provolone or mozzarella cheese


Turn the oven to broil.  Drizzle each slice of bread lightly with olive oil and broil for 2-3 minutes, or until just golden at the edges. 

Spread each slice generously with pesto, layer with mushrooms and tomatoes, then a slice of cheese.  Return to broiler for another 3-4 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and golden.  Enjoy!


If making these at the same time as the mushrooms and pesto above, there shouldn’t be too much residue and you can use the same foil or parchment paper the whole way through–just spray the foil with a bit of nonstick spray if you’re concerned about sticking.  The parchment paper should be just fine.
