Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers, but it always irritates me how expensive 2 little pieces of bread with the equivalent on 1 tomato on it is. Since I had some homemade bread
in the freezer and some tomatoes that needed used, I decided to make my own for cheap!
1 long, thin loaf of homemade bread (or 1 loaf Italian or garlic bread)
2 roma tomatoes, diced small
1/4 onion, diced small
1 tbsp lemon juice
2-3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Nonstick cooking spray
Step 1: Slice the bread into small, thin pieces
Step2: Dice up tomatoes & onion very small. In a bowl, combine with seasonings and lemon juice.
Step 3: Sprinkle a healthy tablespoon of topping onto each piece.
Step 4: Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, until crispy on top. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Serve warm, and try to keep from eating the whole loaf at once!
Sadly I don’t remember where the inspiration for this dip came from, but I read on another blog about putting fresh raw radishes into a dip, and decided to make my own version based on what I had in my house.
1 package cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup radishes, diced very small
1/4 cup red onion, diced small
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp dried onion
~1/2 tbsp sea salt
Step 1: Mix room temperature cream cheese and sour cream in a bowl until blended. The dip should be spreadable but a spoon could stand up in it.
Step 2: Add in all the other ingredients, and mix well. Serve with whatever crackers you like. This was a hit at a small gathering I had!
