3 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons olive oil
24 French bread slices (1/2 thick)
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
2 pounds tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped
1/4 teaspoons red pepper flakes
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 tablespoons basil leaves, stemmed and finely chopped


Preheat oven to 300. Melt butter with 3 tablespoons oil, stirring over low heat. Arrange bread slices on baking sheet and brush both sides of bread with butter mixture. Bake until crisp and golden, turning once (about 10-15 minutes).

Heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in large skillet. Add onions and cook over low heat until soft. Add garlic and cook an additional minute. Add tomatoes and pepper flakes. Cook over medium heat until liquid evaporates (10-15 minutes), stirring frequently. Stir in one half of chopped basil at end of cooking time.

Preheat oven to 350. Spread toasted bread slices with tomato mixture. Top with crumbled bacon. Place on baking sheet and heat through (approximately 8-10 minutes). Remove to platter and garnish with remaining basil.

Makes 8 servings
