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)



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! :)


Healthy and colorful bruschetta, love its presentation...
