Garlicky Bruschetta

2 Jan

Garlicky Bruschetta

This bruschetta recipe is great to whip up in no time at all and it tastes so fresh! I like to use extra garlic and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

one loaf of baguette bread (or sourdough baguette)

5-6  fresh ripe roma tomatoes

4 cloves of minced garlic

several fresh basil leaves sliced thinly

salt and pepper to taste

a couple of spoons of extra virgin olive oil

Cut bread diagonally into 1/2 inch slices. Brush one side with oil and place on baking sheet. Place bread in the oven and bake at 350 degrees F for a few minutes until toasted. While it’s baking, in a bowl combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Mix well. Then when bread is toasted, remove from the oven. Spoon mixture onto the bread and serve.

Tip: it’s a nice colorful idea to use a few yellow tomatoes in the mix

Easy as 1…2…3!
