• 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 40 g slightly salted English butter by Sainsbury's, softened
  • 28 g fresh basil, washed
  • 1 pack Taste the Difference part-baked half ciabattas, sliced in half lengthways

  • 1 tbsp olive oil by Sainsbury's
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1.5 tbsp balsamic vinegar by Sainsbury's
  • 1 tsp Tabasco pepper sauce
  • 1 tsp caster sugar


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 180ºC, fan 160ºC, gas 4. Mix the garlic with the butter. Finely chop a quarter of the basil leaves and mix into the butter. Spread on the ciabatta and wrap in foil parcels. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Put the tomatoes in a roasting tin and drizzle over the olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and Tabasco. Scatter over the sugar and half of the remaining basil leaves.
