Bistro Bruschetta
1 slice & 1 tablespoon tomato mixture
10 Min

Many Italian restaurants include bruschetta on their appetizer menus, 'cause it's fresh, tasty, and a great way to start a meal. Our recipe for Bistro Bruschetta is just as good as any restaurant-kind and looks pretty too!

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 loaf (16 ounces) French bread, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 8 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do




  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oil and garlic powder; mix well and set aside 2 tablespoons of the mixture.
  3. Brush the tops of the bread slices with the remaining oil mixture and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden.
  4. Meanwhile, in the same large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients with the reserved oil mixture. Spoon the tomato-onion mixture over the toasted bread slices and serve.
