Serves: 4

1 16 ounce Baguette
2/3 cup Olive oil
8 cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
1/2 cup Fresh basil (chopped)
1 tablespoon Mixed fresh herbs such as:
and/or Rosemary
3/4 cup Soft goat cheese (flavored or plain)
2 cups Mediterranean olives (coarsely chopped & pitted) (optional)
4 large Tomatoes (thinly sliced into rounds)

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Cut Cut baguette crosswise in half, then cut each half lengthwise (you should wind up with 4 slices at this stage).
  2. Combine the olive oil, garlic, basil, and herbs of choice in a bowl. Divide the oil mixture into halves. Brush all sides of the 4 bread slices with one half of the mixture. Set the other half aside.
  3. Grill the bread cut side down for 1 minute. Remove them from the grill and add the cheese, tomato, and olives if using. Drizzle the remaining oil mixture on each slice.
  4. Place the slices back onto the grill to cook the bottom sides for about 3 minutes. Either serve as open-faced sandwiches or stack the pieces together and slice diagonally in half before serving.
