Bruscetta with Mushrooms and Peas $2.39

When one thinks of bruscetta, they usually think of bread with tomato, basil, garlic and olive oil, well truth is, Bruscetta is actually toasted bread(usually Italian) with garlic and olive oil. The topping doesnt necessarily have to be tomato, it can be spinach, mushroom, beef, liver etc.....I always try to make my toppings healthy because basically bread isnt "healthy" esp white bread, it is just a carb, so what I top the bread with, provides all the nutrition. I could probably come up with a bruscetta a week, but that would mean me eating lots of bread a week, because anyone that knows me, knows I cant resist bruscetta of any kind.
A friend recently served this at a party, and I liked them so much, I wanted to make them myself

ingredients for bread:
8 thinly sliced Italian bread .40
1 tblspoon olive oil .15
1 small garlic clove minced .10

1 tablespoon olive oil .15
