Start with: Garlic bread from your favorite Italian spot.
To make: Slather slices with prepared marinara or pesto sauce. Top with mozzarella or goat cheese, a marinated pepper, or an oil-packed sun-dried tomato, then toast in the oven.
Also try: Hummus po' boys. Spread hot garlic bread with hummus and top with coleslaw or lettuce and tomato. Cap with more hot, crunchy bread.
