Ingredients

Bruschetta:

  • 4 Roma tomatoes chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil minced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced and chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt I love using Kosher Salt, but table salt would work just fine
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese (grated works too)

Toasted Bread:

  • 1 French baguette sliced into 1/2 inch slices (I use the mini loaves, for a smaller "bite-size" appetizer.)
  • butter for spreading not necessary but recommended
  • sliced provolone cheese cut into fourths, can substitute with another white cheese

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients for bruschetta. Set aside

  2. Spread a small dab of butter on sliced baguettes, and top each baguette with a slice of the quartered cheese.
  3. Place the baguettes on an ungreased baking sheet, and broil in the oven for 1 minute {or until the cheese is melted, and the bread is slightly toasted.}
  4. Top each baguette slice with about a Tablespoon of the tomato-herbed mixture, and serve immediately!

      Kimberly, you have NO idea how much I needed this comment today. Not because of the compliments, not because of anything tied to self ego. But your words “We need you” spoke to me on a level that you may never fully understand… at least until I share why on a future blog post. 🙂 Your words made my entire year and encourage me to keep pushing on in blogging, in life. Thank you so much.
      I’m so glad that you and your low study group loved the recipe! It is STILL one of my favorites! 🙂 Thank you again, XO.
