What is there to say? Bruschetta is probably one of my all-time favorite foods. I know, it doesn’t seem like much, but the wonderful flavors of fresh tomatoes and basil are absolutely perfect together. It’s one of those pleasures in life that just puts a smile on my face. Give me a toasty baguette rubbed with garlic with a bowl of this yummy bruschetta topping, and all I need is a glass of red wine to make me one contented mama. But, of course, that’s not the way it usually goes down. I absolutely MUST double this recipe when I make it because my family loves it almost as much as I do. So, consider yourself warned. You might just want to make a bit more than you think you’re going to need!

Bruschetta
Instructions
  1. With a serrated knife, slice the half baguette on the diagonal; you'll need about 12 slices. Using a grill, large cast iron skillet or grill pan, toast bread slices until browned and starting to char lightly. Immediately remove toasted bread and rub with a garlic clove.
  2. Seed and dice the tomatoes. Stack the basil leaves one on top of the other; roll into a tight log and with a sharp knife, cut into thin strips.
  3. Combine chopped tomato and basil in a small bowl; drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Toss lightly to combine.
To Serve:
  1. Place the bowl with the tomato and basil mixture next to a plate with the toasted garlic bread. With a spoon, scoop topping mixture onto toast pieces and enjoy!
