Holiday entertaining is fun, but can be a lot of work. My Grilled Bruschetta is easy to make and looks beautiful arranged on an appetizer plate. They make a nice little lunch as well.
12 Thick Slices Crusty Italian Bread
6 Large Halved Garlic Cloves
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
2 Chopped Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Chopped Basil
12 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
Preheat your oven to broil. Place the bread pieces on a grill pan and place in the oven for 2 minutes per side. Remove from the oven and rub each side with the garlic. Drizzle the olive oil over each piece of bread. Place the chopped tomatoes on top of each piece of bread and sprinkle with the kosher salt. Place back under the broiler for 45 seconds. Remove from the oven and arrange on a serving platter. Garnish with chopped basil and serve. Makes 12
