Seb's Italian-style aperitif slices


Seb's Italian-style aperitif slices
These Italian-inspired snacks are ideal for a light supper or with an aperitif: a thin slice of bread spread with pesto, sliced potatos, hard-boiled egg and a generous sliver of Parmesan.

Pop them in the oven just long enough to melt the cheese.

Remarks
To be really in keeping with the Italian mood, opt for an Italian-style loaf, shaped like a baguette but made with olive oil which adds flavour and makes for a softer bread.

If you live anywhere near Brest, I heartily recommend trying the ones made by my friend Sébastien (Brittany's best baker 2019) at his bakery Penn ar bread" in Guipavas – it's a must.
Keeping
Best eaten immediately but can be reheated.
