Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers, because it is not only easy to make and presents well but is delicious.

We must have made tons of the stuff when my daughter had her catering business.

Ingredients

1
loaf of italian or sourdough bread
10 large
roma tomatoes
1 medium
sweet onion
3 clove
garlic
2 large
sprigs fresh basil
8 oz
feta cheese, crumbled
3 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
NOTE: PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY BEFORE YOU BEGIN.

Preheat oven to 300ºF

In medium mixing bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon of oil and balsamic mix together until fused and set aside

Cut bread loaf into 1" thick slices horizantally on the diagonal (similar to julienne cut)

Place bread slices in single layer on baking sheet lined with parchment paper

Use remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to brush both sides of bread slices. If you have any oil left, blend it into oil/vinegar mixture

Sprinkle grated parmesan lightly over bread slices
2
NOTE: For this recipe, it is necessary to use all fresh produce!!!

Cut tomatoes into halves

Peel and cut garlic cloves in half

Peel and cut onion into quarters

Remove stems from basil (use only leaves)

Place all these items in food processor and lightly pulse until just coarsely chunky (DO NOT OVERPROCESS)

Use slotted spoon to transfer to mixing bowl with oil/vinegar mixture and toss gently until veggies are well coated

Reason for using slotted spoon is so your mixture won't be too juicy

Set aside
3
Place bread slices in preheated oven and toast for 5 minutes. Do not overtoast or bread will be hard

Remove from oven and arrange slices on serving platter in single layer

Spoon 1 to 2 tablespoon of bruschetta mixture onto each slice, then sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese
4
ALTERNATE METHOD OF PRESENTATION:

Place bread slices in decorative basket lined with linen cloth.

Cover bread with cloth to keep warm (If you have a warming stone to set in the bottom of basket underneath cloth, that's even better)

Place bruschetta mix in serving bowl with spoon

Place crumbled feta cheese in separate serving bowl with spoon

Let each guest perpare their own slice(s).
