A plate with a slice of bread, topped with tomato, basil and garlic topping.Here is a quick and easy bruschetta inspired recipe that I have been loving for an appetizer or quick snack! For an extra touch pair with brie and salami.


*Yield varies depending on bread size and how much you scoop. The bread I used today was an extra large french bread (from Vons) so I was able to make 6 pieces.

Feel free to make any adjustments to your liking. This is a flexible recipe!

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Yield: Varies


  • 1 tomato
  • basil
  • olive oil
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Dash of black pepper


  1. Peel 3 cloves of garlic. Mince 2 cloves and 1 clove will be used to rub your bread (if you love garlic, feel free to mince more).
  2. Dice tomato and chop basil (I am growing basil indoors so I used some green basil and purple basil).
  3. Add all ingredients in a small bowl with dash of black pepper.
  4. A mixture of chopped tomatoes and basil.

  5. Add in your desired amount of Parmesan cheese, some olive oil and mix together with a spoon.
  6. A close up of the tomato, basil and garlic topping.
  7. Toast bread and then rub bread (especially the edges with the garlic clove). Optional - cut slice of brie.
  8. A piece of bread topped with a slice of brie.
  9. Top off with tomato, basil, garlic topping. Enjoy with side of salami, crackers and some wine if you'd like.
