Recipe: Bruschetta

Bruchetta is simply wonderful.
It can be a variety of things- tomatoes, peppers, beans, meats & cheeses.
This is just my simple and addictively delicious version. I can eat it all day long and still want more the next day.

Things you'll need:
fresh bread (like a baguette etc)
garlic 6-8 cloves
olive oil
ripe tomatoes cut into medium chunks
red, orange & yellow bell peppers cut into medium chunks
fresh basil 
small onion
salt & pepper
balsamic vinegar

First you'll want to grill your bread. I actually just lightly oiled my bread tossed in some chopped garlic and fried my bread.

In the same pan add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil and as much garlic as you can handle.
Add your onions, tomatoes & peppers.

Keep things on a medium heat. Your tomatoes and peppers will start to cook down and create a wonderful "sauce" naturally for you. 

Add a sprinkle of salt & pepper.

(Fresh basil from my garden.)

Roughly cut your basil.

Add 2-3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar (or more if you like) to your mixture and work it in.

Once the vinegar is absorbed in you can plate it up.

But wait! There's more!!!

I know it looks delicious enough as it is, and you are more than welcome to stop here. But let me sway you this way:

Mmm hmm....

Uh huhhh...


I'll be making this for the 4th of July & the following week too for a family gathering its a perfect appetizer for a large bunch.
