I adore bruschetta. All that tomato-y, cheesy, bready goodness–marry me now.
Almost a year ago, I took my best friend to Olive Garden for her birthday. She had an actual meal, but this girl here (yes, me) ate bruschetta. Like, the appetizer bruaschetta. And it was magical. (Not just because our awesome server let me have salad too.)
I think that was the last time I actually bought bruschetta. (I need to do that again; the bread was baked perfectly.)
Though I thoroughly enjoy bruschetta, I don’t eat it often. However, when I get a real hankerin’ for some, I fix up this quick snack. It doesn’t beat Olive Garden’s bruschetta (or any real bruschetta, at that), but I can attest that it’s a darn delicious alternative.
