Fabulous!! Because there is a lot of chopping...(and I double the recipe)..i make the topping a day ahead. The flavors really combine together. I also added a splash of balsamic vinegar and added a little fine chopped red onion. I don't put them back under the broiler to heat, serve it cold. My family and company raves about this recipe!!
This was good, however we added a lot more garlic to it to give it a little bit more flavor. We also brushed one side of the bread with olive oil before baking. Balsamic vinegar also seemed to bring out more of the flavor.
My husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon. Bruschetta was one of our favorite appetizers. One thing that I would omit doing is broiling the tomatoes once on the bread. I like the tomatoes uncooked, the way we had it in Italy.
Extremely easy to make and tates impressive. Since I wanted my tomatoes room temperature, I toasted the bread in the toaster oven and omitted the broiler entirely. Try this with a hearty red wine-- excellent!
This was very easy. I added some balsalmic vinegar to bring some more flavor to it. My first attempt did end with burnt bread because I had it too close to the broiler - so be careful!
A delicious recipe-tastes just like it does in Italy. Remember to move your oven rack to the furthest level away from the heat when you broil it though, or it will burn.
I don't even have to try this recipe because it is exactly how I make mine. Poeple tell me it ROCKS.
For the bread part though, I cut french bread thin and brush both sides with olive oil and broil it. You have to watch it closely as it will get brown too fast.Turn the bread over and brown the other side as well.
The bread can sit overnight in a closed bag if you have to let it wait. It will stay nice and crunchy. After you spoon the tomato on top of the pieces of bread, we don't broil it but if you do you can also sprinkle a few shreds of mozzerella cheese and melt it. It really does ROCK.
Extremely good. Took awhile to prepare, but it was a big hit.
