Super Bowl with Super Special Snack - Bruschetta!

Bruschetta is a fresh, simple and delicious Italian appetizer that can be prepared in minutes and enjoyed any time as an appetizer. We had friends over today for the Superbowl and this is what I decided to make as an appetizer! Everyone enjoyed them and so did I. It's light and delicious!

It was a fun and exciting game. New Orleans SAINTS won the game fair and square to be crowned as champions for the first time in the history! And I won the appreciation on the Bruschetta :)

Here is the simple Bruschetta recipe with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil. (Printable View of Recipe)

Ingredients:

Method:

1.Prepare the tomatoes first. Parboil the tomatoes for one minute in boiling water that has just been removed from the burner. Drain. Using a sharp small knife, cut the tomatoes in 1/2 inch pieces and remove seeds.
2.Combine all relish ingredients except the Mozzarella cheese in a small bowl. 
3.Stir well and taste for seasoning. 
4.Put 2 tbsp of Olive Oil on a pan and toast the bread slices from both sides.
5.Remove and arrange the prepared bread on a baking dish.
6.Spoon mixture over each bread slice and drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over top.
7.Add a little mozzarella cheese on each slice and toast in a preheated oven (400 d F) for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
8.Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and serve. 


 
 Serves 6-8 for appetizer.

I love bruschetta with fresh tomatoes. Often in restaurants they serve them topped with tomato sauce- not very fresh at all. These look perfect, I bet they went down wonderfully! Gorgeous picture!

Thanks Devi, Sumi, Priya and Sanjana.
@Sanjana-- I agree with u..Nothing can beat fresh tomatoes on a bruschetta!
When I saw everyone enjoy the Bruschetta yesterday, I remembered the scene from Julie & Julia, where actress makes Bruschetta from Julia's recipe book and she takes the first bite! :)
