This bruschetta recipe might just be the recipe I have made more than anything else. If you have ever been to a restaurant and ordered this delicious appetizer, you may just wonder how to make bruschetta. Well, this recipe is for you!
I like my bruschetta to be full of flavour and highlight the ripe roma tomato. Onions and garlic are added to give some nice zing. After the mixture is spooned on a toasted baguette, sprinkle some feta and fresh chopped oregano.
Every single bite of this tasty appetizer is incredible!
This past Sunday was Mother`s day and we debated going out to a restaurant to celebrate. They are usually so busy on that day we therefore decided to have a nice meal at home. On the Sunday afternoon we stopped by Old Navy so Janna could use a gift card she received from the kids. Next to it was an East Side Mario’s and the line up outside was so large it confirmed to us our choice to eat at home was wise!
Home cooked food is always good, right???
Bruschetta bread is easily the dish most requested in our house. Any time I ask Janna what she wants for dinner, this is her ‘go to’ response. So, it was quite obvious that when Mother’s Day approached, she would be eager to have it as part of the dinner menu.
I was happy to make it as it is easy to make, bright and fresh with wonderful flavour.
The sweetness of the tomatoes, the zip of the lemon juice and garlic, the saltiness of the feta and the fresh flavour of the oregano work so well together on a toasted baguette slice.
