Amazing Bruschetta

January 8, 2021


I could live off of this and Pinot Grigio for the rest of my life. Well not really. I would miss Bordeaux too much! But it sounds pretty gosh darn good right about now.

Here’s a simple yet out-of-this world recipe for bruschetta. I highly recommend this with a glass of your favorite Italian white wine (including sparkling). Picture me waving my right hand in the air like an Italian when I scream “Delizioso!”

Bruschetta (pronounced “bru-sketta”)

• Slices of the freshest crusty bread you can get your hands on, such as ciabatta

• Ripe tomatoes (cherry or grape tomatoes are great)

• Freshly basil leaves

• Extra virgin olive oil

• Salt

• clove of raw garlic (optional)

Prepare the tomatoes first by chopping into similar sized pieces and tossing in a bowl with sea salt and a generous slosh of extra virgin olive oil. Set aside for at least 10-15 minutes to allow everything to marinate.

Meanwhile grill your bread if you happen to have the barbeque on or broil in your oven on high for 2-3 minutes *until crispy.

If you are using the garlic, rub the clove over the hot toasted bread. Top with the chopped tomatoes and freshly torn basil add another drizzle of E.V.O.
