Roasted Garlic Bruschetta

Published by at 4:56 pm under Cooking at Home

Our tomato plants are growing like crazy and there’s only so much we can do with all these tomatoes! We’ve already given more than half away to our relatives, and yet we’re still finding ourselves harvesting on a daily basis – that’s how fast they grow! So we figured – why not make a nice and refreshing Bruschetta as an appetizer? It’s actually one of my favorite appetizers at Italian restaurants – yes, moreso than the wildly popular artichoke dip!

Did you know that the proper pronunciation is actually brus’ket.ta? The “ch” in Italian is pronounced with a hard “k” sound. So next time you order this at the restaurant, be sure to pronounce it correctly so you can teach the waiter/waitress a thing or two!

Start by roasting some garlic in your toaster oven. We used only 1 of the 2 garlic bunches shown here in our bruschetta. It should take about 15 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Next, chop up your tomatoes and basil and throw it into a small bowl. Doesn't it look gorgeous?

When the garlic is done, you can easily pop them out like so. Roasted garlic gives the bruschetta so much more flavor!

Chop up the garlic and toss together with the tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegraitte, and some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and you're all set!

We got some nice olive bread from Fresh 'n Easy to dip in the bruschetta. It's such a healthy appetizer that is full of fresh flavors!

    Love bruschetta and love roasted garlic. This is a winning combination for sure! (And so much better with your own garden fresh tomatoes, no doubt!)

    Fantastic recipe and I LOVE the bread that you all are serving with it. I bet this combo has so much flavor!

    Ladies, this is definitely a winning combination! The bread is important – make sure you don’t use any crappy stale bread to eat with the bruschetta! Thanks for the comments!!

    The salty flavor of olive bread is so good. It’s hard to not to just eat it all by itself. Delish bruschetta recipe.

    That looks sooooo good. The colors are amazing and the garlic looks so tasty. I need some now! :)

    We hope you try to make some bruschetta while tomatoes are abundant this season. Nothing better than having fresh tomatoes, basil, and roasted garlic!

    Oh yeah….the ultimate appy as far as I’m concerned! :-)
