Tomato Basil Bruschetta

Natalie Loop


I am a stay at home mom with a home based candle making business. After taking my son to school I get home and get busy. Often times I forget to stop working and eat. This is something I make once a week and keep in the fridge when I can take a few mins and eat something. Works great as an appetizer also.

  • 1
    french baguette, cut on bias approx 16 slices
  • 4
    ripe tomatoes diced
  • 1/2 c
    basil chopped
  • 2 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp
    balsamic vinegar
  • 1
    clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp
    coarse or sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp
    black pepper

How to Make Tomato Basil Bruschetta


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Dice your tomatoes and place in a bowl, mix in your chopped basil, garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar and set aside. Slice your baguette into about 16 slices (or however many it yields) and place on a baking pan to bake for about 10 minutes.
  2. Feel free to drizzle a bit of olive oil on the bread before you bake it, but that will of course add extra calories. Spoon your bruschetta mixture onto your baguette slices while your bread is warm and enjoy! Feel free to add more olive oil on top of mixture if you like olive oil.

    Store your excess tomato and basil mixture in a airtight container in the fridge, tastes amazing over grilled chicken!
