Classic Bruschetta

Thursday, October 17, 2013

While back I made a cozy dinner for my husband and I even showed some pictures here at the blog, but  somehow I've never shared the recipes. This appetizer recipe is pretty simple yet delicious and it can be prepared quickly, take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

6-7 roma tomatoes, diced
1 baguette, cut into slices
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup basil leaves (washed, dried and cut into thin ribbons)
Salt and pepper

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees. In a small bowl, add the olive oil and garlic, season with salt and pepper. Let it stand for about 10 minutes to infuse the olive oil. Meanwhile, in another bowl, combine the tomatoes and basil ribbons, toss together and refrigerate into the bread is ready. Arrange the bread slices in a baking sheet. Using a brush, dip the brush into the infused olive oil and brush each slice liberally. Toast slices for about 3-4 minutes or until light golden brown. Top each slice with the tomato and basil mixture. Arrange in a nice platter, serve and enjoy!

Sorry I clicked on the publish button a few times because it didn't appear to be publishing. Never had that happen before?
