In this instructable, I will show you how to make Bruschetta.
Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe, you are going to need:
1 french loaf
8-10 roma tomatoes
2 tbsp melted butter
3 cloves of garlic
10 basil leaves
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
Step 2: Prepping the Garlic
Remove the skin of the garlic, allowing you to pull off the cloves. You are going to mince TWO of the cloves.
Remove 3 cloves of garlic and using knife, lay the blade flat on top of a clove, hitting it, this will loosen the skin on the clove making it easier to remove. Once the skin is removed, mince two of the cloves.
Step 3: Basil
Now you are going to gather 10 basil leaves. Roll the leaves up individually and cut into small pieces.
Step 4: Tomatoes
Cut the tomatoes into quarters and then remove the seeds, then cut into small pieces.
Step 5: Mix Them Together.
In a medium bowl, mix the minced garlic, tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, 1/2 of the basil leaves, salt and pepper.
Step 6: Chill!
Place the mixture into the refrigerator until it is ready to be used.
Step 7: Bread
Now you are going to slice the bread.
Lay the bread on a baking sheet and brush both sides of the bread with the melted butter.
Step 8: Baking!
Place the bread into the oven that's been preheated to 350° and bake for 10 minutes.
Step 9: Not Quite Yet!
Flip all of the slices over and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
Step 10: Yummmm... Garlic
Take the remaining clove of garlic, cut it in half and use both pieces to rub over the sliced bread.
Step 11: Top It Off!
Spoon the tomato mixture over the bread. Top it off with the rest of the basil leaves.
Step 12: Enjoy!!!
