When I cleaned out the fridge this morning, I got an unpleasant surprise.  Stuffed all the way in the back corner was a half loaf of old, stale bread.  I wanted to throw it out, but I knew I’d feel too guilty. Instead, I spent a few minutes looking through old recipes.  What I came up with was Bruschetta.  Aah, perfect.


4 slice stale bread

2 small tomatoes

1/4 cup olive oil

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1 tbsp olive oil

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp dried basil


Combine the 1/4 olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl.  Brush onto both sides of the bread. Bake in toaster oven till both sides are very lightly toasted.

Meanwhile, coarsely chop tomatoes.  Mix in 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic and basil.  Let marinade.

When bread is finished toasting, let cool for three minutes. Spread with tomato mixture and your bruschetta is ready.

Bruschetta Variation #1: Skip the tomato mixture.  Classic bruschetta is eaten without a topping.

Bruschetta Variation #2: Substitute 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves for the dried basil.
