For a more authentic approach, roast the garlic and invite guests to rub the cloves on toasted bread themselves. Serve cheese and tomatoes on the side.
6 servings (serving size: 2 croutes)

1 whole garlic head
Cooking spray
3 plum tomatoes, each cut into 4 wedges
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled goat cheese
12 (1/2-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut French bread baguette, toasted


Preheat oven to 425°.

Remove white papery skin from garlic head (do not peel or separate the cloves); wrap in foil. Line a baking sheet with foil; coat foil with cooking spray. Arrange tomato wedges in a single layer on foil. Bake garlic and tomatoes at 425° for 40 minutes, turning tomatoes after 20 minutes. Remove tomatoes from oven; bake garlic an additional 5 minutes. Remove garlic from oven; cool 10 minutes. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins. Mash garlic pulp and goat cheese with a fork until blended.

Spread 2 teaspoons goat cheese mixture over each bread slice. Top each with 1 tomato wedge.
