Bruschetta

Ingredients

  • 1 French baguette, cut into 1/2 inch thick circles – I also got a small loaf of pumpernickel for added flavor and color.
  • 8 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Combine tomato, basil, and red onion in a small mixing bowl; stir well. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.
  3. Arrange bread on a baking sheet. Place in oven, and bake until well toasted, approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Remove bread from oven, and transfer to a large serving platter. Let bread cool 3 to 5 minutes. Rub garlic into the top of each slice of toast; the toast should glisten with the garlic. Spoon the tomato mixture generously onto each slice, and serve.

This is so delicious!!!  It is a great side or appetizer for an Italian meal.  An easy add is mozzrella and parmesan to the tops.
