Quick, Simple Bruschetta

Hey guys! I’m finally here today to present to you all…a how-to! This is a super simple recipe and easy instructions for anyone to try. This bruschetta was greatly inspired by http://goudaforyou.com and it looked so delicious, so I went and tried it out myself! Unfortunately, I did not have any basil at the time, but it still tastes amazing! So if you don’t like basil, this is the perfect recipe for you! And hey I know traditionally, bruschettas are made with basil and that’s what brings it all together…which it does, but it tastes great both ways so don’t worry!!!

(For about 3-4 servings)

To get started you will need:

  • 2 chopped Roma tomatoes (little cubes)
  • Bread – a nice baguette or ciabatta roll will be perfect
  • Olive oil
  • Finely chopped garlic (1 clove)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Grated parmesan cheese

1. Prepare your ingredients first and preheat the oven to 325F. Cut your bread (preferably a baguette or ciabatta roll) into thin slices, but not too thin. Chop up your two tomatoes into small cubes and put them in a small bowl. Then add some salt and pepper to the tomatoes. Finely chop a garlic clove and mix that into the tomatoes as well. Stir this, so the flavor is spread throughout the whole mix. Let this sit while waiting for the oven to heat up.

2. Once the oven is ready place a piece of aluminum foil onto a cookie sheet and place the slices of bread on top. Then lightly drizzle some olive oil onto the pieces of bread and put them into the oven for 8-10 minutes to give you the perfect amount of crunch!

3. Take the pieces of bread out of the oven and get your cheese out!! Sprinkle the Parmesan over the warm bread so it will melt and prevent your snack from falling apart while allowing it to be tasty at the same time. Choose however much cheese you would like and then spread the tomato mix over the slices.
