Easy Bruschetta Recipe
Sometimes when I am making a nicer dinner I like to have an appetizer that’s not a dip. Although I love a good dip it’s great to have that golden ticket recipe in your recipe repertoire that is classy, easy and you can make ahead. This easy bruschetta recipe is just that. You’ll love the ease of only six ingredients and that it can be assembled the day of. In fact I recommend throwing this bruschetta recipe together the day of your party.
Here’s how you whip this little recipe up:
Gather your tomatoes. You’re going to want to cut the ends off each tomato, and cut them in half. Take a spoon to carve the seeds out.
If you leave the seeds in your bruschetta will be pretty watery and that’s no bueno.
Once all of the seeds are out of the tomatoes dice them with a paring knife. Toss them in a bowl and chop your basil. It’s easiest to roll the basil leaf in a roll and cut slices after doing that.
Add the basil to the tomatoes and sprinkle in your parmesan cheese. To your mix add in your finely mined garlic, some balsamic vinegar and salt&pepper. That’s it. Seriously. I told you it was wicked easy right!?
Serve your bruschetta on top of some browned buttered and garlic’d slices of french bread. Yum! To make my bread I butter each piece with a bit of butter/garlic spread and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees , flip and bake for 5 more minutes at 350. I would do this as you’re ready to serve your bruschetta. That way the bread is warm and crispy – delicious!
