So I love Italian food, among all other types of food which I love as well. I made tonight some yummy Bruschetta; which is usually toasted bread that has garlic rubbed into with some olive oil topped with a tomato, onion, herbs and garlic mixture. The mixture is usually served cold or room temperature as an appetizer. Well how I Americanized it was I add mozzarella to the mixture and heated until the mozzarella melted into the toasted bread. I hope everyone enjoys my take on this classic Italian dish.


Cutting Board
Chef Knife
Bread Knife
Mixing Bowl
Cookie Sheet


4 Roma Tomatoes, diced
1/2 Onion, diced
2 Clove Garlic, one diced one whole
1/2Tbs Parsley
1 Sprig Thyme
1tsp Rosemary
2Tbs Basil
1tsp Salt
1tsp Black Pepper
1tsp Red Pepper Flake
Olive Oil
1 Loaf Ciabatta Bread
8oz Fresh Mozzarella


Slice bread in half an inch slices. Place on cookie sheet and put in oven with broiler on. Toast until golden brown. Pull out of oven and with one of the whole garlic cloves rub across the bread until all is covered with the garlic. Drizzle olive oil on top the bread. Set aside.

Pre-Heat oven to 350°F. Dice tomatoes, garlic, and onion, place into mixing bowl. Crumble the mozzarella or use the little pearls of mozzarella into mixing bowl with salt, pepper, red pepper flake, and minced herbs.

Then place mixture on top of the bread and bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until mozzarella is melted. Then enjoy!
