Twice in the past week, we've made homemade bruschetta and boy, oh boy, is it good. It's so simple, so fresh, and so yummy. Give it try!
The Recipe: Tomato Bruschetta
What you need:
3-4 medium sized tomatoes
1 small/medium onion
1 clove of garlic, chopped or minced
1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
1-2 tbsp olive oil
dash of salt
1 regular size baguette or loaf of French bread
Combine all ingredients (except bread) in a medium bowl. Slice the bread into 1/2 inch thick slices. Arrange bread on a cookie sheet and broil on 400˚ for 2-3 minutes (it's quick!). Take bread out of the oven and arrange on a plate. Place a spoonful of the tomato mixture on top of each piece of bread. Enjoy!
See? Quick AND easy! We tried it on French bread the first time and used a baguette the second time. I think I like the French bread a little better, but both ways were delicious. We have a lot of tomatoes and basil, so this was a great way for us to use them in something besides salsa or tomato sauce!
