{Katie’s Kitchen} The BEST Bruschetta

Brought to you by Catoctin Mountain Orchard 

Nothing is better than fresh ingredients straight from your own garden. We specifically grew Roma tomatoes this year because I wanted to make delicious brucschetta…this is my favorite recipe! It is such a simple summer recipe!

If you’re making this for a few people, then 4 tomatoes is fine. If you’re making it for a party, use 8.

I chopped my tomatoes into small pieces while removing the seeds and then, placed them into a bowl.

Add in the Parmesan cheese, basil, and garlic and stir. Then, Mix in the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Place the bowl into the Refrigerator while you prepare the bread.

Then, brush your sliced french baguette with olive oil and place on a grill or a pan in the stove (350 degrees for 5-7 mins.) to toast.

Once done, remove from heat and top with your homemade Bruschetta and cheese!
