"A very easy, versatile recipe of a pesto topping on French bread slices. One of my most requested recipes! Great for potlucks or as an accompaniment to soup or salad meals. Try them with sun-dried tomato pesto!"

  1. 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.
  2. Set the oven temperature for 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a small bowl, mix together mayonnaise, pesto, garlic, Parmesan and salt. Spread evenly over untoasted sides of bread slices.
  3. 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.

I tried it with precooked baguettes - the pesto rounds were absolutely delicious! they can be eaten with just about anything or just alone...excellent recipe!

Excellent! Just watch them so they don't get too brown...the broil and bake times in the recipe were a little too long for my oven!

This was very good. Followed the directions exactly. Big hit with my family.

Very popular at my Christmas Eve buffet! Yummy flavor and nice, creamy consistency. I think I used Italian bread because that's what I had. But it tastes good on any bread, as I've been eating t...

This was such a hit at my husbands brithday party, But I did not cook it served it cool and it was so tasty

Fattening but fabulous! I suppose you could use lite mayo, but I hate the taste of it. I served these to my Bible study group, and it created a feeding frenzy. The men climbed over each other ...

I loved this!! Will make these all the time, I'm sure.
