Greek Bruschetta

"Rustic, golden-brown bread slices - crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. Drizzled with great olive oil, sea salt and Mediterranean oregano. That's really the recipe right there. You'll love this."

Ready In:




  • Slice the bread 1 inch thick; grill on the bbq or under the grill in the oven until golden and crusty outside, but still soft and chewy inside- this takes about a minute per side, but it really depends on your grill temperature; drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and oregano, to taste; enjoy!
  • I haven't really put down the number of servings cause you can make as many as you like, but count on a couple of slices per person cause they're so delicious.
  • Note: you can do a variation on this by rubbing a cut garlic clove on the grilled bread before adding the remaining ingredients.

  1. Very yummy! Never thought of salting bread, but it gives it a nice flavor. I followed other reviewers and also added some minced garlic too.
  2. So good! So quick! So easy! You can't go wrong. The taste was lovely and light. I followed the directions as posted and was very pleased with the results!
  3. Great recipe! I used Zupse Bread Swiss Bread recipe# 115337 for making it and used garlic flavoured olive oil. It was excellent topped with cut up fresh tomatoes, parma ham and a bit of basil.
  4. Wonderful bruschetta!! I used homegirl's Country White Bread Recipe #141600 that I made for the Random Draw tag game. Sliced the bread thinly and placed in the oven. I did rub the bread with garlic before adding the olive oil, salt, and oregano. Served with katie in the up's Green Olive Relish (basic) recipe #123349. Thank you evelyn, I enjoyed another of your great recipe!!
  5. Such a simple recipe which has great flavour. I used french bread but will try with sourdough next time. This is a perfect recipe for when unexpected visitors drop by as it is so quick to make. I piled some with Baked Cherry Tomatoes and Feta #134738 and the combination was perfect.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
