Bruschetta is one of our favorite Italian starters. Whenever we visit Italian restaurants, Bruschetta is our default order. Some dishes are easy to cook and have minimal ingredients – bruschetta is one among them. Image Bruschetta: Preparation Time: 5 mins | Cooking Time : 15 mins | Serves: 2 Recipe Category: Appetizers & Snacks


Garlic Bread – 7 slices

Garlic – 2 pods, Finely Minced

Red Grape Tomatoes- 1 pint, Halved Lengthwise

Dry basil – 1 tsp (Fresh basil is preferred. Since I didn’t  have them, I used dry basil)

Salt – as needed

Italian Seasoning – 1/2 tsp (Optional)

Olive oil – 1/2 tsp


  • Add olive oil to the skillet, over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir for about a minute. When garlic becomes golden brown, switch off the stove. Add tomato, salt and basil, give a gentle mix.  Transfer into a mixing bowl and allow to cool. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or two, if possible


  • Before serving, give the tomato mixture a final stir, and spoon generously over the slices of Garlic bread

Image   Image My Notes:

  • I have used Grape tomatoes. You can also use chopped regular tomatoes/cherry tomatoes
  • I have tossed the tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes can be used as well

I tried this with French bread. It can be made with any other bread.

    Bruschetta is great because it’s infinitely customizable to any taste. I usually use sliced roma tomatoes but I like the idea of cherry tomatoes, it adds a bit of sweetness!
