Bruschetta for Appetizers

This is one of the easiest appetizers you can make. Sometimes, this is our dinner, especially on a hot summer day. It sounds very fancy but believe me it is very simple to make and scrumptious!

Here I have two recipes, Bruschetta with Sauteed Mushrooms and Bruschetta with Basil and Tomato, Drizzled with Balsamic.

Ingredients
Bruschetta with Basil and Tomatoes
  • 1 loaf of french loaf or good crusty bread, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes or a 250 grams of cherry tomatoes
  • olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar
  • 8-10 basil leaves, washed and chopped
  • salt and pepper

Directions

Bruschetta with Basil and Tomatoes
  • Place sliced bread in a heated grill/ toaster or on pan.
  • Once done, slice garlic into half and rub on the bread. Drizzle with olive oil and place on a plate
  • Dice tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. Remove seeds. Drain and place in bowl
  • Add basil, salt and pepper
  • Drizzle some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and mix.
