LC Cheese Crostini

I have not missed bread that much since I've been on my low-carb diet but I do miss the convenience of making sandwiches for lunch. I wanted to make a loaf of low-carb bread for sandwiches. So I searched the net to find a recipe.

Well, I found one that looked pretty good and very easy to make. Then I made it. Oh, does it not taste like the way it looked. So, instead of throwing away the whole loaf, I turned it into delicious cheese crostini.

Whole portion is 2085 calories, 24g net carbs, 147g fat, 73g protein.
Each piece is 174 calories, 2g net carbs, 12g fat, 6g protein.

1 loaf low-carb bread
1 tspn olive oil
1 tsp garlic powder
4 slices provolone cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning

Heat oven to 375F
Place slices of bread on a baking sheet lined with foil, brush/spray olive oil onto each slice of bread, sprinkle garlic powder on them. 
Cut the slices of provolone cheese into 3 parts and place them onto each slice of bread.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning over each slice.

Bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and cheese is bubbling.
