Bacon Bruschetta

I had the munchies while I was at work so I decided to make Bruschetta since I had all the ingredients at work, all I needed was run to the store for a loaf of baguette.

This serves 4 to 6 people as a light snack or a delicious appetizer.

  • This is what you will need 4 medium size tomatoes, 1 shallot, a box of basil leaves a pack of bacon (I prefer a thicker cut) and garlic paste (if you dont have that handy than use 2-3 gloves of garlic) olive oil
  • Add 2 table spoons of the garlic paste to the diced up bacon. Warm up the pan on high heat. Throw in the bacon mixture and cook till crispy, no need to add any extra oil since the bacon will release its fat content.
  • Once cooked spoon the bacon onto a plate with a couple of sheets of paper towels so that the paper towels will absorb any of the excess oil.
  • While the bacon is resting, dice up the tomatoes and basil. Put everything into a mixing bowl and add the bacon with a little drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of ground pepper. (no need for salt as the bacon is already a little salty) give it a good toss and serve it over a crusty French baguette and enjoy!
