Bruschetta… that’s what’s for dinner.

So you’ve had a long work week, filled with day after day of rain… and you want something easy to make for dinner. I give you one word.


The first thing you need is bread, it wouldn’t be bruschetta without it… You can slice your french baguette in 1/2 inch to 1 inch slices depending on how many you want to make.

Pre-heat your oven to 350F, and put together your toppings… Let’s get our green items together first…

Next we’ll get into the fruit/spread, veg, egg etc…

Spread goat cheese (or your creamy cheese of choice) onto your bread slices, and pop those babies in the oven for 5-8 minutes. Once your cheese is nice and creamy, time to add those toppings.

If you have speciality olive oils and balsamics, you are going to want to use them to make your meal even more savory/sweet.

Here are our Bruschetta creations from top (left) to bottom (right.)

  1. Orange Mint
  2. Olives
  3. Blood Orange Olive oil
  4. Rosemary
  5. Honey Walnut
  6. Blueberries (perfect with blueberry balsamic added)
  7. Spinach

My selections: Scrambled Egg & Chives, Radish, Caramelized Garlic

Not only is this a really filling meal, it’s also a breeze to clean up. Just bag up those extra toppings, wash up the pan (if you were messy) and you’re done!
