Homemade Bruschetta

So good homemade bruschetta .

Today was one of those kind of days I felt like having bruschetta.  I had 6 Roma tomatoes and I was afraid they might spoil so I made some and it was so yummy.   

Bruschetta can be made without cooking but I wanted to try it my way.  First I placed my tomatoes in a large glass type bowl.  Then I boiled 2 cups of water and poured it over the tomatoes. I let them sit in water until I saw the skin start to break away . Removed tomatoes with tongs and pulled away skin.  I then Cut and scooped out seeds from  tomatoes and then diced them.

In a medium size pan on low I placed some olive oil ,minced garlic and cut tomatoes. Turned up heat and added some freshly chopped basil and a pinch of salt and pepper. I Let the tomatoes cook down slightly and when cooked, cooled and then refrigerated them until a few minutes ago.

Drizzle some balsamic over it before serving.

 It may seem like a lot of work but this was a small amount and perfect for two. Earlier in the day I bought French bread so this bruschetta on toasted French bread was awesome.** Note: toast the french bread before spooning the tomatoes on..Yummy!

 I have a little bit left to snack on tomorrow. It was delicious.  I made mine a meal topping it with balsamic vinegar.  Hubby had hamburgers too!
