Fresh Homemade Bruschetta Served on Arnold Dutch Country Wheat Toast


This is an easy-to-make snack, appetizer, or hordeurve that is not costly to create. The main ingredients are plum tomatoes and Arnold Dutch Country 100% Wheat Bread. I've noticed recently that more and more people have been seeking out recipes in which to use sliced bread because it is more economical. This recipe is a tasty one that can be served with the tomato mixture either warm or chilled, so you can use it during all four seasons. I do think the colors are particularly nice for autumn though.





Recipe: Bruschetta on Wheat Toast

INGREDIENTS:
1-1/4lbs plum tomatoes
5-1/2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp dried basil leaves
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 loaf Arnold Dutch Country 100% Wheat Bread


Step 1. Coarsely chop tomatoes

Step 2. Heat 1-1/2 Tbsp oil in large heavy skillet

Step 3. Briefly saute tomatoes to soften

Step 4. Combine remaining oil, lemon juice, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper

Step 5. Drain some of the excess liquid from the skillet

Step 6. Stir mixture into tomatoes and remove from heat

Step 7. Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Step 8. Cut the desired number of Arnold Dutch Country Wheat Bread slices into either halves or quarters

Step 9. Lay the bread pieces on a baking sheet. Then lightly, but evenly, spread on butter or margarine


Step 10. Bake the bread pieces approximately 5 minutes or until evenly browned. (The longer the bread is toasted, the better it will hold up against the moisture of the bruschetta topping.)

Step 11. Serve the tomato mixture warm or cold next to freshly toasted wheat bread pieces



I think this particular wheat bread works well for this recipe because it is thick and has more body than more airy type breads. To turn this recipe into a meal, you can also serve the tomato mixture on top of pasta, rice, or a salad.
