What You Will Need:
8 Artichoke Hearts, finely chopped
1/2 C Green Olives, finely chopped
4 Tbsp capers (Also called Flinders Rose)
1 Whole Garlic, top cut off drizzled with olive oil, roasted
1 Tbsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 C Parmigiano-Reggiano finely shredded
1 Loaf Fresh Baked Ciabatta Bread, sliced and baked (Also called slipper loaf)
1/4 C Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
Prep Your Mis en Place (Fancy)
Pre Heat your oven to 400. Cut the top off the garlic, drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil, wrap in foil and roast for 15 minutes on a cookie sheet.
Take the garlic out of the oven add the sliced ciabatta bread to the cookie sheet with the garlic and bake for another 8 minutes.
You want the bread to be crispy like a crouton.
Wrap the garlic in a paper towel and squeeze until the cloves ooze out then, smear across the toasted ciabatta bread.
In a glass bowl, add the capers, finely chopped artichoke hearts, green olives, crushed red pepper flakes, and parmigiano-reggiano.
Mix well, then top the garlic rubbed ciabatta bread with the olive bruschetta and finish with a drizzling of a nice balsamic vinegar.
