Herb’s Bruschetta

Pinit

One Saturday recently I took my Nana to the local farmer’s market to get some fresh veggies. Tomatoes were in abundance, so I purchased a few, not entirely sure what I would use them for. Then the idea of a simple bruschetta recipe came to me – putting the tomatoes with some of our fresh garden basil and cheese on toast! Sounds like a great lunch to me!

I called Herb and asked if he would make us a fresh loaf of bread in our bread machine. As a side note, bread machines seem to be rarely used by the general population, but we LOVE ours and use it often. It’s very easy to use – you add 6 ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, yeast, water, olive oil) to the bread machine, hit a button, and in an hour you have delicious, fresh bread! No preservatives like what you buy in the store, and much cheaper too!

Anyway, Herb made a loaf of bread, and we fixed some simple bruschetta when I got home with the fresh tomatoes.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil
  • Bread
  • Cheese (we used mozzarella and feta)

Recipe Directions

Slice your tomatoes and chop your fresh basil. We used two baseball-sized tomatoes and about 1/4 cup chopped basil. We kept our tomatoes as slices, but you could dice them as an alternative.

Slice your bread into small pieces. We probably used about 1/4 to 1/3 of a loaf. We cut our bread about the size of a credit card and 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

Pour some olive oil into a bowl. We used about 2 tablespoons. Brush the top of the bread with the olive oil. Add tomato slices. Sprinkle with basil and shredded cheese.

Broil on high until cheese is melted and bread starts to crisp, about 5-7 minutes.

We give this recipe 5 out of 5 herbs! It’s really the freshness of all the ingredients that make this dish perfect. Our bread was fresh, the tomatoes were perfect and juicy, and the basil had just been hand-picked from our garden. Yum!

  1. OK, I make something similar to this, only I call it a caprese sandwich. I do the olive oil, tomato, and basil, but add fresh mozzerrella (I have no idea how to spell that one) cheese, and grill it (olive oil the outside of the bread, too) and it is TO. DIE. FOR! A little salt (or a lot) and pepper (if you must) and you have yourself a mighty fine lunch right there.

    Now that I have thought about it, looks like this might be what’s for dinner!

      That sounds wonderful! The combination of fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella is absolutely divine in my opinion. Yum! Wish the local tomatoes would hurry up and grow….
