Easy & Fresh Bruschetta

Ever since I was little I have LOVED tomatoes. Being a picky eater as a child I quite literally survived my elementary school years eating tomato and cheese sandwiches. This wasn’t for a lack of trying on my parents part for me to try new lunches and food…I simply refused to eat anything else. Sorry mom!

Now that I am all grow up, I still LOVE tomatoes and even grow them in my garden 😊

From time to time I get a craving for Bruschetta so I figured I would share my take on it with all of you.

Ingredients:

1 White Baguette

5-6 Roma Tomatoes (any other tomato will do as well but these are my favourite choice)

2 TBSP Sweet Onion (finely diced)

1 – 2 Cloves of Garlic (minced)

½ Red Pepper (finely chopped)

Handful of Fresh Basil (Chopped)

¼ Cup Freshly Grated Parmesan

1 TSP White Pepper

1 TSP Dried Oregano

Salt to Taste

1 TBSP Olive Oil

2 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar

How To:

  • Dice and chop all your ingredients.
  • Place your tomatoes in a strainer and squeeze out the juices so the bruschetta is not watery.
  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Slice your Baguette and toast in the toaster, or if you prefer, pan fry it until golden brown in a pan with butter.
  • Place topping on baguette slices and enjoy 😊
