Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers of all time. With the crunchiness of the bread and the wonderful spices of the topping. It really is a hit at every party.
What you need:
- 1 loaf French or Italian bread sliced into 1 1/2 – 2 – inch slices
- olive oil
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 pint grape tomatoes sliced in half or 1 medium tomato, diced
- 1/4 cup onion diced
- 6-8 large basil leaves chopped
- salt to taste
- balsamic glaze optional
What to do:
Drizzle olive oil onto a grill pan over medium heat. Place bread slices onto grill pan and drizzle tops with additional olive oil. Cut tip off of garlic clove and rub onto the top side of the bread slice. Grill bread until lightly toasted, flipping to grill the other side, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from grill to a serving platter.
Stir together tomatoes, onion, and basil leaves. Add salt and spoon onto the top of the grilled bread. Drizzle all slices with balsamic glaze, if you choose to use.
This is such a simple recipe and it is so easy to double or triple if you are expecting a lot more people. I would hihgly suggest trying this and then messing with the ingredients a little in order to get your own amazing recipe.
