  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped garlic and sauté.
  2. Once the garlic is soft and beginning to brown, add the white beans with the liquid from one can, milk, herbs and seasonings.
  3. Stir the mixture and bring it to a simmer before reducing the heat to low. Continue to cook until thickened, about 10 minutes. Season with more salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Brush the bread slices with olive oil. Place them on the parchment and sprinkle them with salt. Place them under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, until crisp and golden.
  5. Cut the remaining garlic clove in half. When the toast is just out of the oven, rub the surfaces with the garlic and sprinkle them with shredded Manchego cheese.
  6. Remove the bay leaf from the beans. Place them in a serving dish with toast on the side or spoon the beans over the toast. Garnish with olive oil, red pepper flakes and more cheese, as desired.
