Quick Oven Veggie Toast Bites

The bread and butter of after school snacks is likely a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. But sometimes you need something a little different, yet still simple enough and filling.

Here I have sliced a french garlic loaf into small "bruschetta" size pieces. Since I don't always keep the herbs for bruschetta around, this is something that is simple and the kids love.

Ingredients for Veggie Toast Bites

French or garlic loaf bread
1 tbsp butter
1 clove garlic 
(you can also use garlic salt if you'd like Amazon sells organic garlic salt)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 ripe tomato
1 onion (I used leek bulb)
Dried oregano
Your choice of cheese (1 slice is fine)

Great afternoon snack or as an appetizer.

Steps for quick oven veggie toast bites. 
Melt a bit of butter in a frying pan, and crush the garlic into it. Let it warm.

Slice the bread and toast it on a pan for 1-2 minutes or in the oven for 5 minutes.

Butter the bread with the garlic butter

Dice your tomato, onion and cheese and place in a bowl.
Add oregano and olive oil.
Toss lightly.

Place onto  bread and walla! You're done! If you want the cheese melted, add back into the oven for a few minutes to melt.

Yum and fun. Kids can assist in putting their favorites on the bread as well.

What is your favorite type of toast topping?


  1. This sounds yummy, and it looks good, too! Great idea for getting kids to enjoy having veggies as part of a snack :) Would also be perfect for a cocktail party.

  2. They look really delicious! I think I'll try them with my son. And if he doesn't want them, I'll eat them all, lol
