We got these tomatoes over the weekend and kept thinking about what we wanted to do with them. We have been so busy but we kept saying Bruschetta and then finally today my (caitlin) night class got canceled!!! So I decided to start dicing up some tomatoes and make some Bruschetta to surprise Gretch! This recipe is so simple, healthy, and a great appetizer. 🙂
3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs balsamic vinegar
3 tbs chopped basil
2 minced garlic cloves (this would be 1 tsp if you are using canned minced garlic)
3 large tomatoes chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 loaf of baguette bread
Chop up your tomatoes into tiny pieces then mix together your tomatoes, evoo, balsamic, basil, minced garlic, salt and pepper into the same bowl. Chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. Cut your loaf of baguette into thing to medium sized slices and line them on a ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Top each slice with a spoon full of the tomato mixture then top it off with a little feta. Pop them back into the oven for about 5 minutes until cheese gets a little melty!
So here is another little taste of Italy to go with the pasta! 🙂
Have a great and safe Halloween weekend everyone!!! we will be posting some halloween recipes this weekend!
