Simple Bruschetta

When you need to make a last-minute appetizer, you can't go wrong with this easy bruschetta. This is the simplest recipe that you can make with  few fresh ingredients.  I made this over the week end and both my kids loved it.   Try to use a good extra virgin olive oil and some fresh basil leaves.


French bread - 1 loaf (Sliced)
Plum tomatoes - 4 (Finely chopped)
Fresh basil - 5 leaves (Thinly sliced)
Shredded Parmesan cheese - 4 TBSP
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1/4 cup
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Pepper - 1/4 tsp


In a bowl, mix all the ingredients except the bread.  Let it stand for 15 minutes.  Before serving, toast the bread for 5 minutes or until it's crispy.  Spread the tomato mix on the bread.  If you like, you can sprinkle some black pepper on top.  Serve immediately. 



  1. This looks awesome... I am going to try this...


  2. Bruschetta is my favorite and it's always good to make it at home because some places overload it with cheese or salt.

  3. Slurp! I love simple snacks like this, fresh and delicious! :)
