Simple Bruschetta

  • 3-4 Heirloom tomatoes - the more colors, the more fun!
  • 2/3 Cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2/3 Cup chopped onion (as fine as you like)
  • 5-6 cloves garlic, minced (however much you like - we go crazy with garlic)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Sliced bread for toasting
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Powder
  • Mix tomatoes, onion, basil, garlic in a bowl and salt/pepper to taste
  • Let mixture sit for 30 minutes or so for flavors to combine, stirring periodically
  • Slice bread and place on a cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic powder
  • Put bread in the broiler or oven until crisp and browned to your liking
  • Spoon tomato mixture onto bread and serve!
Brownie likes to sprinkle his bruschetta with romano or parmesan cheese - I prefer it light and fresh.
