My tomatoes have attacked.   They are amassing in large numbers in my garden and there is no way to stop them.  I clearly planted WAY too many tomato plants, but hey, whats done is done, so lets eat them.

I love bruschetta and we were going to a party so I though it would be an easy side dish to bring and enjoy. 

You will need:

  • Tomatoes
  • Basil
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Olive Oil
  • Bread

This is super easy so I’m going to go quick.

scrape garlic all over the bread and lay it out on a baking sheet like so.  Take the rest of the garlic and chop it up real good.

You are going to toast the bread in the oven until they are golden brown.

Remove from the oven, grab a spoon and toss a big scoop on the toast.   Then eat another one, because they are awesome.  Have someone near by to stop you from eating all of them.

Ben…

If you have any good recipes involving tomatoes please send them my way.  My garden is still overflowing with them.
