Easy Bruschetta Recipe

I love bread, and I love tomatoes, so it's only natural that bruschetta is one of my favorite foods.

Bruschetta is typically eaten as an appetizer, but I like it as a snack at tea time or even as a light meal. I avoid ordering this in restaurants because the bread is never as toasty as I like it, the tomatoes are never as fresh, and there's usually a lot of other, in my opinion, unnecessary toppings.


You will like the simplicity of this recipe. The most important things are good bread and ripe tomatoes.  This is quick and easy with minimal ingredients, so try my recipe or use it as a base to make your own customized bruschetta. Either way, you will love it!
