My bruschetta is one of my most coveted recipes! A true garlic lovers best friend! I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked for this recipe. Let me tell you, writing it down was H-A-R-D. I normally make this & adjust the seasonings as I go. Keeping track of what exactly I put in it?!?! A straight up challenge.

This recipe is for my soon to be sister in law, Shana!! She has asked for this recipe countless times, as well as the others in my tribe! This one goes out to my homies <3 😉

I can promise that this bruschetta is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. It’s the Ferrari of bruschetta!

Deseeding ALL of the tomatoes (big & small), is WORK, so round up your best gal pals & get to WORRRRK!! The payoff is well worth the effort.

I dare you to make this & tell me you DON’T like it.

One of my best gal pals did a collaboration with me on this dish!! I asked her to make a cocktail that would compliment ALL of the delicious flavors of the bruschetta so we could sit down & share a nice lunch together. She came up with: BRUSCHETTA & BELLINI’S <3 <3 oh my damn!! To get the recipe, visit her Instagram account @tkldpink12

PS I included a photo of all of the tomatoes I used, so you can see EXACTLY how many go in it.
