Bruschetta

Sliced red and yellow tomatoes

Tomato basil mixture

Easy way to evenly coat the bread with butter

Just out of the oven!

Perfect+Melts in your mouth

I have always wanted to try to make bruschetta and I am SO happy that I did!  These are so good and literally melt in your mouth. They are crispy and pop the second you eat them.  Eat them for an appetizer while other delicious food is awaiting, or eat them with steak or chicken. The parmesan on top pulls it together and adds something extra.  I LOVE these things!

Brushetta

  • 1 C chopped cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium yellow tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 C fresh basil chopped
  • 1 T  good quality olive oil
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of sugar
  • 1/4 C butter, melted
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 loaf baguette-style french bread (16 ounces)
  • 1/2 C shredded parmesan

Instructions

In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, basil, olive oil, minced garlic, and salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a small bowl combine butter and garlic powder.  Put in microwave for about 20 seconds until melted.

Set broil on oven to high.  Get out a cookie sheet.  Slice bread about 3/4 inch thick.  Dip each piece of sliced bread in butter on both sides.  Lay on cookie sheet.  Put  tomato mixture on top.  Broil about 5 minutes until heated through and golden brown.  Top with about a teaspoon of parmesan cheese.
