This was the best bruschetta I've ever made! I made it twice once with onions and once without. I think I'd go with half the amount of onion the next time since the onion dominated the other tastes. Overall it was very delicious. Read More

Although I did alot of tweaking I still must say this wasn't what I thought it would be. It was edible but not irresistable. Read More

This is a great twist on the classic tomato-based bruschetta. The balsamic vinegar gives it a little extra bite while the roasted peppers lend a savory sweetness. Definitely a big hit at parties. Read More

Excellent and easy appetizer. Didn't have italian bread so i used texas toast and cut into 4 squares. Worked out nice. Added some chopped up black olives for color. Delicious and will definately make again and again.:) Read More

Enjoyed this. My husband thought it needed some parmesan cheese on top so I experimented with some remaining pieces. Put shredded parmesan and popped back in the oven -- he liked it better this way but I liked it the other. Also dipped my French bread slices (one side) in the olive oil and then rubbed another slice with the first piece. Read More

This is absolutley delicious!! I followed the recipe to the letter with the exception of using a couple teaspoons of dried basil because I didn't have any fresh and I added 1 Tablesppon of parmesan to the mixture. Be sure to top the bread right before serving because it will get a bit soggy if sitting for awhile. I may toast both sides of the bread next time. I'll be using this recipe often I couldn't stop eating this. During the summer I plan to roast my own pepeprs using a blend of yellow orange and red. This would look beautiful on a platter for summer picnics and barbeques. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!:) Read More

If you go for the jar of peppers don't be afraid to use the whole thing! It seemed like a ton so I just added half then mixed in a little more then a little more... ended up using the whole thing. Next time I will do the roasted peppers myself but this time I ran out of time. Great appetizer in a pinch!! Definitely sprinkle with grated Parm:) Read More

I followed the recipe almost exactly but roasted fresh peppers myself rather than using jarred. It was terrific as an appetizer before Christmas dinner. I spread some leftover homemade basil-walnut pesto on the baguette slices before topping with the bruschetta mixture. The combination of flavors was fabulous. Read More
