Sometimes the simple appetizers tend to be the best. If I am spending a lot of time preparing the main course, I really don't have time to spend hours to make an appetizer. Why make an appetizer? Well, I really need something to hold the kids (boy) over until dinner is ready.The best thing about bruschetta is it is just toast. I can even toast the french bread in the toaster oven which clears up even more space. I do recommend slicing your bread thinner than mine.
1/8 cup of olive oil
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp parsley
1 tsp rosemary
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste
8 slices of french bread
1 tomato, sliced in cube pieces
8 leaves of basil, sliced
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, sliced
- In a small bowl, mix the olive oil, oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper.
- Brush each top of the sliced french bread with the olive oil.
- Toast the french bread in the toaster oven, oven, or grill.
- Brush the cubed tomato pieces with some of the olive oil mixture.
- Mix the basil and tomato pieces together.
- Top each piece of the french bread with the tomato mixture.
- Sprinkle each slice with a little cheese before serving.
