  • Total Time:
  • Servings: makes 12 toasts


  • Six 1/2-inch-thick slices cut from a round loaf of country bread
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • 1/4 cup black-olive tapenade or spread
  • 12 piquillo peppers (from a 9.8-ounce jar)—drained, halved lengthwise and patted dry
  • 12 white anchovies (boquerones)

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the broiler. Brush the bread slices on both sides with olive oil and arrange on a large rimmed baking sheet. Broil 8 inches from the heat, turning once, until golden but still chewy in the center, about 2 minutes.

  2. Top the slices of toast with the tapenade, piquillo peppers and anchovies. Cut the toasts in half crosswise and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Cava and tapas are a classic match. Pair these easy, traditional toasts with a glass of ripe, fruit-forward sparkling rosé.
