  • 1 bunch basil (chopped)
  • olive oil (splash)
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 baguette

  1. In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, onions, basil, olive oil and parmesan cheese.
  2. Let rest for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Slice up your baguette in to pieces for toast, about 1/2 inch thick. Then pop them in the toaster.
  4. In the meantime, melt your butter and garlic together. Then brush your toast with the garlic butter.
  5. Top with the bruschetta! And enjoy!
