TASTY TOMATO AND SMOKED TURKEY BRUSCHETTA

One of the easiest and gratifying dishes a person can make is definitely the classic bruschetta. You can see this on most any restaurant menu as either an appetizer or an easy lunch choice because of the popularity of this simple dish. This recipe has all of the same flavour components that you love about the classic bruschetta, and you will love it even more with the addition of the smoked turkey meat.

Serves 4

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch of coarse salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 green onions, sliced diagonally
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil (or use 1 tbsp of fresh basil)
  • 1 small garlic clove, grated
  • 3-4 slices of smoked turkey deli meat
  • Good quality Parmesan cheese, grated (not from a dispenser)
  • Fresh Baguette (or use pre-made garlic baguette)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 Degrees F. Slice the baguette in half and then slice the bread into quarter pieces. You should have a total of 8 slices. Drizzle the baguette with a little bit of olive oil and put it into the oven for 2 minutes until they are lightly browned. Take it out of the oven and leave it aside for now.

2. In a medium sized bowl, add in the rest of the ingredients except for the Parmesan cheese which will be sprinkled on top.

3. Spoon the bruschetta mixture on top of each baguette slice and then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese. Put it back into the oven for a couple minutes and serve.
