Husband calling: "Darling! We have visitors from my work in about an hour, can you please have some snacks ready?" . Has it ever happened to you? Or maybe you have a neighbor coming over for a quick chat. Empty table when visitors are coming in not in our dictionary. You are the ultimate Chef! You are always ready to impress.
One of my "save my face" dishes when people are coming over is bruschetta. The only problem is that it is so tasty that I usually have to make more:) It won't take more than 10-15 minutes. Ready? Time is ticking....
- 1 whole-wheat baguette (or you can use white, however I prefer healthier options in general, but sometimes we simply have no choice)
- 3 tomatoes
- olive oil
-2-3 cloves of garlic
-basil leaves (Thanks for comments- a MUST HAVE:)))
1) Slice baguette same like shown below and toast it in the toaster or crisp it up a bit in the oven.
2) Cut tomatoes into small squares. Remove the seeds (check the pictures below). Add salt and fresh grinded pepper. Add chopped basil (thanks Carol for mentioning it)
3. Mix olive oil with squeezed garlic. Right before serving this dish, brush this mixture on top of toasted baguette slices, put tomatoes with basil on top. Try one? hey hey heeeeeey...leave some for the guests:)
Bon Appetit my Glam Chefs!
