Tuscan Garlic Bread (Fettunta) Recipe




In our family we are bread lovers. Throughout the years, we make a simple garlic bread that was the traditional style my grandmother made while I was growing up. As a child I still can remember the aroma of her homemade dense bread baking, as it sat a few days or got older (if there was any left) she would make this mouth watering garlic bread that was perfect with any stew or sauce based meal. Actually I can eat a whole plate of this bread without anything else just as a snack. That's a real bread lover! Grandma passed away in 1976 on October 4th. R.I.P. grandma Victoria. Your memory always lives on in your cooking recipes.



Tuscan Garlic Bread (Fettunta) Recipe

4 slices day old bread or more depending on family or guest size
2 large fresh cloves of garlic
Extra virgin olive oil first cold pressed (good grade)
Freshly cracked black pepper
Dried Oregano
Grating cheese
Sea salt

The quality of the oil is a must with this recipe.  Toast the bread under the broiler on both sides to light brown in color.  While still warm and crisp, rub garlic cloves all over both sides of the bread. Sprinkle with freshly cracked black pepper and salt. Drizzle with olive oil all over the slices and sprinkle with oregano and grating cheese. Serve immediately. Best tasting while still warm and oil hasn't soaked through the bread.
