Quick bruschetta

Bruschetta is Italian toasted bread with a topping. In this case tomatos. You can finish it up with a bit of grilled cheese if you really want to but I like it without.

This is one of my favourite summer snacks

Quick bruschetta

  • Prep Time: 5m


  • 1 Slice of good white bread
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 5 Tomatoes - I like the small cherry ones for this
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil, if you have it
  • Spices: oregano, salt, pepper, sugar.


  1. Slice your self a thick slice of bread. Toast it (in oven or on a toaster).
  2. While it is toasting slice tomatoes and peal a clove of garlic.
  3. Once the bread is toasted on both sides, rub the clove of garlic against one side of the bread.
  4. Drip a bit of oil on the bread. Add the slices of tomatos and put a bit of all the spices on. Yes sugar sounds strange but tomatoes loves sugar. It needs quite a bit of salt and pepper to be really good but it if you got good tomatoes this is heaven in the summer.
  5. You can also dice the tomatos and add in the spices and olie. That way you have some of the topping in the fridge.
