During the summer when tomatoes are overflowing from the garden, we have tomato bruschetta for dinner...alot. And it never gets old or tired.

"Things on Toast" is practically a food group in our house. I make bread regularly, and we always seem to have a bit of an old loaf hanging around when the new loaves come out of the oven, so turning it into dinner provides the perfect thrifty solution. Examples; https://food52.com/recipes/7331-chicken-and-mushrooms-on-toasts ; and its first cousin: https://food52.com/recipes/1965-leftover-turkey-sort-of-stroganoff . We eat these with a fork and knife. Other, not-recipe methods include: toasting artisanal bread, covering with an almost sheer layer of grated Asiago or Pecorino Romano (sometimes with a light film of pesto down first), floating it on tomato soup, or minestrone, or Tuscan bean soup, and running it under the broiler for about 30 seconds, as one would with French onion soup. We also thinly slice baguettes, toast, and cover generously with Genius (Ottolenghi & Tamimi) hummus, topped with my homemade dukkah, which is included as part of this recipe: https://food52.com/recipes/12066-hard-cooked-eggs-lime-aioli-and-dukkah , which also features toast, and would make a great summer dinner! ;o)
