Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta is always a favorite and super simple to make. This appetizer or light lunch captures the essence of summer. I also love heirloom tomatoes on my Spinach Quiche.
We love entertaining and creating festive backyard picnics. But, I also like to enjoy them and I don’t want to spend the entire time in the kitchen prepping food to serve. So simple finger foods like this delicious tomato bruschetta with cheese are great options! I really like to serve foods people can snack on while we enjoy time together. And it helps keep everyone happy to have something to nibble on, while they wait for dinner to be cooked. (AND if you’re like us, it never gets cooked quite on time!)
How to make Easy Tomato Bruschetta:
Step 1: Cut up fresh heirloom tomatoes or cherry tomatoes and add to the bowl with the other ingredients. We grew several different varieties of heirloom tomatoes in our garden this year. And, fresh basil. So I just went out to the garden to harvest fresh ingredients.
Step 2: Brown the baguette slices in a cast iron skillet with olive oil.
Step 3: Top the toasted baguette slices with the bruschetta mixture. Add some freshly chopped basil and shaved Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
