Farmer’s Market Bruschetta
I live in a cute little town in Utah. They have a farmer’s market here every Saturday and my husband and I love to go. One of the things we make is Bruschetta. It does take a little bit of work to chop all of the tomatoes, but is totally worth it. This recipe is 1 baguette worth, about 15 slices.
What you need:
- 1 loaf of baguette style bread.
- 5 tomatoes, chopped (we take the seeds out of 3 of the 5 to cut back on liquid)
- 1 garlic clove finely minced
- 1/2 tsp basil (you could do more if you like basil)
- 1 and 1/2 TBS olive oil
- 1/2 TBS balsamic vinegar
- salt and pepper to taste
- extra olive oil to drizzle
*** Note*** The olive oil and vinegar can be played around to your liking. Sometimes we don’t use the above exact measurements, we just add a little at a time until it tastes the way we want it
What you do:
- Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices. Brush the tops with olive oil.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Place the slices of bread with olive oil side FACE DOWN on a baking sheet.
- Bake 5-9 minutes until crispy. Check at 4 minutes if you like a less crusty bread.
- Combine all other ingredients in a bowl. Top the slices with the brushetta mixture and enjoy!
