Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced

  • 2 slices (1 inch/25 cm thick) sourdough bread crusts removed
  • 1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese

Cut onion into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices and separate into rings; spread in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) oval gratin dish.

Cut tomatoes into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices; overlap over onion. Drizzle with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil; sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until almost all moisture is evaporated, about 40 minutes.
