Hi there my Chef in Training friends!! Kristyn from Lil’ Luna here. I’m so glad I can be here today helping out while Nikki is taking a few weeks off with an injured thumb. Have I told you how much I LOVE Nikki?! She is one of my favorites and I use her recipes like crazy!! I’m so glad we were finally able to meet in person at SNAP last year and could room together there as well as at EVO in July of last year. LOVE her!!! Well, today I am going to be sharing with a super easy and quick appetizer idea. My family is huge on appetizers, and we are always looking for good ones. This Easy Bruschetta recipe happens to be one of those…

Homemade Bruschetta Recipe from Lil' Luna on chef-in-training.com ...This recipe is so easy to make and so delicious! Definitely a crowd pleasing appetizer! #recipe #appetizer

Not only is it DELICIOUS, but it is so simple to make. :) Here is how you can make it too:



– 1 – 32 oz. can Italian Diced Tomatoes – 6 cloves Garlic – 4 TB Olive Oil – 3/4 cup basil


1. Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix right before serving.

For easy bread pieces to go with the bruschetta, I’ll show what we do…

1. Buy hogi sandwich rolls. Cut in slices and place on a cookie sheet.

2. Butter slices and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Broil on HIGH for 2-5 minutes (dependent on how fast and hot your oven is).

Serve the bread pieces with your bruschetta.

Talk about an easy, quick and yummy appetizer! I promise you’ll love this.

It is a family favorite that can be made so easily and tastes so good!

    Looks too good not to make it yourself! My boys love bruschetta and I make it often in the summer when there are fresh tomatoes... hadn't thought to use canned diced tomatoes so, now we can enjoy it in the cold months as well! Yum!

    I love that this uses canned tomatoes! That way you can make it even when tomatoes are not in season! My husband loves bruschetta; I will have to give this a try!

    Oh my! Those do look fast and easy to make! Especially before you've got company coming over...they'd be impressed!

    looks yummy! I am a new found bruschetta lover. Well, for the past 4 years, but on my almost 29 years of life, it's new.

    and my husband thought he was the only one that could make this. I have to try your and see how they compare. It looks great.

    This recipe sounds delicious. Do you strain the tomatoes?
