Medium Tomatoes (2)
Finely Chopped Garlic (1/2 tsp)

Step #1: Using a bread knife, slice Baguette diagonally 1/4″ – 3/8″ thick. Place in toaster oven until golden brown.
Step #2: While bread is toasting, dice tomatoes (1/4″ inch in size) and place in mixing bowl. Sprinkle Miley Q Beef Rub Seasoning over tomatoes and stir. Add finely chopped garlic along with julienne sliced basil leaves. Now add vinegar, stir and set aside.
Step #3: Remove baguette pieces from the toaster and place on a flat surface. Lightly drizzle extra virgin olive oil over each piece, then vigorously rub each piece with a clove of garlic (one side only).
Step #4: Plate the toasted baguette pieces on a serving tray and top each with a generous tomato mixture. Finish with a light dusting of Parmesan Reggiano and serve.
Step #5: Pair with your favorite Red Blend or a Pinot Grigio (well chilled) and enjoy!
