Homemade Bruschetta

Who doesn’t love bruschetta?  It is a simple and crowd-pleasing appetizer that can be easily adapted by adding olives, cheese, onion and beans!  The possibilities are truly endless.   Today, I will be sharing a very simple (yet elegant) bruschetta recipe.


Serves: 4-5

Prep time: 10 minutes



1 large fresh tomato

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ tsp basil, dried

1/8 tsp oregano, dried

Sprinkle freshly ground pepper

Salt to taste

Fresh parsley for seasoning



  1. Place tomato in a small deep bowl or measuring cup. Pour boiling water over the tomato to cover.  After l minute, remove from water and peel back skin from tomato.
  2. Cut the tomato into quarters and squeeze out the excess juice and seeds.
  3. Dice tomatoes into small pieces and place in a medium sized bowl.
  4. Drizzle olive oil over tomato.  Add dried herbs and garlic.  Stir ingredients together and add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Lightly toast small pieces of bread, about ½ inch thick.
  6. Top toast with the bruschetta mix and garnish with parsley

Optional: Sprinkle bruschetta with grated parmesan or mozzarella cheese & place under broiler to melt cheese.
