Hors d'oeuvres

Classic Bruschetta


Bruschetta is one of my favorite dishes to serve at my infamous girls’ nights and wine downs. The recipe takes less than thirty minutes to prepare, the customizable options are endless, and will impress any guest when plated. The first time I made these for my family, I thought I had reached the Martha Stewart elite level! My family and I ate bruschetta with our lasagna dinner and later turned the leftover filling for meal prep salads.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do whenever I make it!
