Making sure you have stale hard bread is the most important part. It should be the same consistency of bread that you would use to make breadcrumbs.
Rub the garlic on each slice of bread but be careful not to overdo it otherwise it will be very spicy!
Open the kitchen faucet to lukewarm water. Run the bread under the running water back and forth or until the bread has become softer and is now more like the consistency of regular fresh bread.
Take the halved tomato and using your hands sqeeze it so that the inside of the tomato comes out onto the bread and you are left with the skin only in your hand. Disgard the skin. Then tear 2-3 basil leaves per slice of bread.
Drizzle the olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and then cut into pieces.
*Do not make these in advance as they will got soggy very quickly. I also like to wet the bread then char it on the grill for extra flavor!
