The Best Bruschetta Recipe, Simple and Full of Flavor! #WDBlogger #Recipe

This post was created in partnership with Winn Dixie. I have bene compensated in exchange for this post.

10 Minute Bruschetta

Easy, healthy, homemade snacks are my kind of treat, which is why I headed to my local Winn Dixie Sunday.

Fresh tomatoes

Right now, tomatoes are in season, which means they are big, ripe, and juicy. Perfect for sandwiches, salsa, pasta and a plethora of other dishes. On my trip, I picked up some Roma tomatoes (on sale, mind you), because I had a hankering for my Quick and Easy Bruschetta Recipe. When I say quick and easy, that’s exactly what I mean. There aren’t many dishes you won’t find tomatoes in, seeing as I am half Italian, but one of my favorite ways to enjoy them are in Bruschetta!

Easy Bruschetta

My recipe for Bruschetta, is possibly the best and tastiest bruschetta recipe you’ll come across. I say that because from prep to finish it only takes about ten minutes (see note in recipe). I don’t know about you, but a recipe that doesn’t take all day, always seems to taste better to me! This is also great for those on a gluten-free or paleo diet. While I used melba toasts in my recipe, you can adjust that to something that works for your specific gluten-free or paleo needs.

Steps To Making Bruschetta

Best Bruschetta Recipe


  • 5 Roma Tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. Fresh basil leaves
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil


  1. Dice tomatoes and put into bowl.  I scrape about half of the tomato insides out and keep the other half.
  2. Mince basil and garlic.  Add to tomatoes.
  3. Add olive oil and stir!  *you can add salt and pepper to taste, but it’s amazing without*
  4. Top Bagel Chips or Melba toast with bruschetta mixture and enjoy!

**Note, you can allow this to sit for an hour or so to let flavors blend, but I am impatient and like to eat it right away hence why mine takes about ten minutes**


Like I said, it’s, in my opinion, the best bruschetta recipe, you can whip it up for a mid-day snack or adjust the measurements and use it for an appetizer at your next dinner party. It is sure to be a hit!
