Bruschetta recipe with step by step photos – simple yet flavorful recipe of tomato and basil bruschetta.

bruschetta recipe

Bruschetta is one of my favorite starters. it not only tastes good but also pretty easy to prepare. You can make them in large quantities for parties or gatherings. This a quick as well as easy starter recipe of bruschetta.

One of the most important ingredient for bruschetta is the right kind of loaf. Use a good quality french or Italian loaf or baguette. I used an artisan baguette made of whole wheat and oats with hints of cinnamon in it. Also use the best quality extra virgin olive oil. Also better to use fresh tomatoes while preparing bruschetta.

To make bruschetta the correct way initially, I had referred to these websites Here & Here. the bruschetta recipe shared below makes for just one serving. Though you can increase the ingredients proportionately thereby increasing the servings.
