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?
