Ten Minute Bruschetta

I had a supper to plan and 2 additional dinner guests. My husband had offered to BBQ so the meat was taken care of. I had been craving bruschetta but knew I didn't have the time (or desire) to chop all the tomatoes, so I came up with this super fast bruschetta recipe that was also really yummy!

You will need:
1 loaf french crusty bread
1 large can diced tomatoes
1/4 to 1/3 cup fresh parmesan cheese
garlic, minced
onion, or dehydrated onion flakes
olive oil
salt and pepper

Drain well, 1 can diced tomatoes. Place in a tupperware container. Add parmesan cheese. Add other ingredients to taste. I added approximately 2 cloves of garlic, 4 tablespoons dried basil, 2 tablespoons dehydrated onion, and about 1 tsp each of salt and pepper. This gave a very garlicky bruschetta, which I like but many people would find too strong. Close container and shake. Allow to marinate.

Slice the french bread on an angle. Brush with olive oil and place under the broiler for 2 minutes. Place bruschetta mix on bread and place in oven at 400 until heated through. Serve immediately.

Hope you enjoy!
