in this Bruschetta: a simple mix of onion, red pepper, salami, basil, salt and pepper. Fresh grated parmesan on top.
Lately I have been on a Bruschetta kick- this is the base recipe I use, there are so many ways to customize this delicious appetizer!
8 pieces of French Bread
1 tomato finely chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 orange bell pepper chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 basil leaf, chopped (or a sprinkling of dried to taste)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Fresh mozzarella or my favorite- parmesan
** you can also add a meat if you like- salami or pastrami would be yum!**
Lets get cooking!
Heat one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add onions, garlic, and peppers and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add tomato and cook until veggies soften- about 3 minutes. Add your spices and remove from heat. Make sure you mix well!
In the same pan, heat another tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the bread slices and cook until a golden brown on both sides. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
Add your toppings to your bread slices and grate fresh cheese over your veggies.
