Basil Pesto Bread Spread


  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup basil pesto
  • Cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt to taste
  • Loaf of Brown Bread



Preheat oven on broiler setting. Arrange bread slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Place under broiler for 5 to 8 minutes, or until lightly toasted on one side. Watch carefully to ensure they don’t burn. Remove from oven, and flip bread slices so that the toasted side is on the bottom


Set the oven temperature for 175 degrees celsius. In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, pesto, garlic, Parmesan and salt. Spread evenly over untoasted sides of bread slices


Bake in the preheated oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Set the oven to broil, and place the rounds under the broiler just until they begin to bubble and turn golden. Let cool slightly before serving
