Secret Recipe Club: Bruschetta

Time for another Secret Recipe Club post. This month I got Morsels of Life. She has a wonderful blog full of recipes and inspiration from around the blogosphere as well.

There were lots of recipes I could have chosen from this blog but I went for bruschetta. I love bruschetta, it's the started I always share with my father in restaurants but I have never made it myself. I also could get the main ingredients from my garden. There really is nothing better than home grown tomatoes picked and served within a matter of minutes.

Bruschetta (from Morsels of Life)
(Serves 4)

4-8 slices of Italian bread
4 large tomatoes, roughly chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
16 basil leaves, sliced
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1.5 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
drizzle of olive oil

Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry the bread on both sides until golden.

Mix all the other ingredients together in a bowl and leave to sit for a few mins.

When the bread is done, transfer to serving plates and pile the tomato mixture on top, drizzle with olive oil and serve.


  1. This is my kind of first course....a great start to a wonderful meal or a meal in itself, if you prefer.

  2. Looks delicious! Perfect showcase for tomatoes of summer.

  3. Always great to be able to make something from the garden - the flavors are so much better! :)

  4. Bruschetta in the summer is so delicious! With tomatoes at their peak flavor and basil growing like a weed in my garden, this is a great recipe!

  5. Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers and making it with fresh garden ingredients is the best. Great choice!

  6. Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers too! So easy to make, so delicious with fresh ingredients and perfect for company.
