Prosciutto, Tomato, Basil Bruschetta

What better appetizer to start off your dinner with than this delicious prosciutto, tomato and basil combination on your baguette bread!  Your guests are going to love you!


 Prosciutto, Tomato, Basil Bruschetta

1 loaf of French baguette bread sliced 2 inches thick pieces
olive oil 
Chopped Plum tomatoes
Fresh basil leaves torn in pieces
1/2 cup chopped prosciutto or bacon
minced garlic

Brush sliced bread with olive oil, ( they sell many flavored oils, I like the basil flavored.) Toast the bread by baking it in a hot at 400 degree oven for 10 minutes, lightly toasted
Spread one side with minced garlic. Top with some chopped tomato and prosciutto. Drizzle with a little more olive oil. Sprinkle with Romano cheese and bake until hot and crispy, around 8 to10 more minutes on 430 degree hot oven. Cool for a minute before eating then garnish with torn fresh basil leaves.

I love bruschetta, it could be a lunch and not be just an appetizer :) Bye, have a great week

Federica said this could be a lunch, not an appetizer and I agree. In fact I have often thought it would be fun to do a whole meal f bruschetta and crostini. This one sounds fantastic with the addition of ham.
