"I have found this recipe for Bruschetta to be the most original of all. It is absolutely the best and equals if not betters what they serve up in most restaurants!"

Ready In:




  • Blanch the tomatoes in a pan of boiling water just enough so the skin can be easily peeled off.
  • Chop up very finely the red onion, and garlic.
  • Chop up finely the fresh basil.
  • Peel the tomatoes and chop up into chunks.
  • In a bowl place a splash of olive oil, the tomatoes, the garlic, onion and basil. Mix through gently.
  • Cover with gladwrap and place in the fridge for up to an hour, this allows the flavours to come together.
  • Lightly toast the Italian bread.
  • Brush the bread with olive oil and place the bruschetta mix on top of each slice.
  • Add the shaved parmesan on top.
  • Serve immediately.

  1. I love bruschetta, I always order it when we go out to restaurants. I've never ate the same version of a bruschetta as each restaurant serves it in a different way (Looks and Taste). I couldn't find Panini Italian bread, so I used a Pane di Casa Loaf, (which is a extra chewy texture on the inside and crunchy crust on the outside). The only thing I will change with this bruschetta next time is less garlic as it overpowered all the flavours. Otherwise it's as good as the restaurants.
  2. Simple and delicious! I didn't have panini bread, but used regular Italian instead and it worked out just fine. I also threw in some capers! Thanks for posting this.


I live in Perth, Western Australia. I am an Office Manager in a Mining Exploration Company. I love summer and going to the beach. I also like rugging up in warm clothing during winter. I love watching cable tv with my hubby on quiet nights at home. I love cooking with a glass of red wine but equally I like a beer or two! I have two cats who I adore but who live with my parents as our place is on a main road and I want them to have a long life. We have recently acquired 2 Jack Russell puppies who are so adorable. They are now part of our little family. DH and I like to get away down south of Western Australia at least 4 times a year. We are happy to stay in 5 star hotels or camp! Depends on the mood! We have recently purchased a block way down south of Western Australia in a little coastal town called Hopetoun. We are looking forward to building a house and spending a lot more time down there, with the view that we will retire down there and enjoy our fishing life. I am happy with my life and look forward to having children with my lovely husband. I don't have many dislikes but I do dislike bitchiness and arrogance. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
