I’m fully prepared to accept the worst blogger of the year award.

I promised you this recipe back in 2011.

TWENTY! ELEVEN!

Inconceivable!

I think the general consensus is that I’m pure evil, but I’m actually the victim here… Really!

You see, though I make bruschetta all spring and summer long, I rarely have more than a sketchy, terribly-lit photo to document the occasion. I’m convinced there’s some sort of food blogger curse preventing the sun from shining on the days I decide to make bruschetta.

Being the raging perfectionist that I am, I couldn’t bring myself to pull the trigger and post the recipe without decent photos.

I need help. If any of you are in the psych field and want to rewire my crazy, I’ll gladly pay you in food. In fact, I’ll pay you in bruschetta!

Serving a large crowd? Double or triple this recipe as needed, it’s so easy to make more!

Dare I say better than the original? It’s a zillion times cheaper too! I usually don’t measure when making bruschetta but I’m so glad I did! This way I’ll be able to re-create this particular batch when the craving strikes!

Which it inevitably will.

Probably tomorrow.

And the next day

Forever.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium loaf bakery baguette , sliced
  • 2 cups diced ripe tomato
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup finely diced white onion
  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 TBSP white balsamic vinegar
  • 5 large basil leaves (chopped/sliced, plus extra for topping)
  • 1 tsp of fresh chopped parsley
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • tsp garlic powder
  • 2-3 TBSP crumbled feta
  • 1-2 TBSP sweet balsamic glaze

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Combine chopped tomatoes, onion, and garlic in a small bowl.

  • Whisk together olive oil, white basalmic vinegar, basil, parsley, salt, garlic powder, dill and pour over the veggies.

  • Brush crostini with olive oil and toast using your oven or toaster oven, until golden brown. 5-10 minutes should do it!

  • Spoon bruschetta mixture over the toasts and sprinkle with basil, feta, and a hearty drizzle of balsamic glaze.

  • Commence faceplant.

  • Bruschetta mixture can be made up to four days ahead of time and whipped out at a moment’s notice for impromptu snacking or an impressive party appetizer! I pretty much want this in my fridge at all times. Forever.

Notes

The above recipe makes just over 2 cups of bruschetta topping,enough for approx 18-20 toasts depending on the size of your baguette. Easily doubled, tripled, and quadrupled to feed a crowd!

special diets and swaps

Vegan? Simply skip the feta and you’re good to go!

T-Rex friends, I have it on pretty good authority that this bruschetta is amazing poured over chicken.

Need a gluten-free alternative? Stuff the bruschetta topping into cucumber cups or bake it into zucchini cups! It’s also amazing in quinoa and stuffed into sweet potatoes! You can also opt for using your favorite gluten-free toast. The options are endless!
