Bruschetta: A Tasty Appetizer And Super Simple

Started by Toni , author of A Daily Dose of Toni | Florida Mom Blog | Gulf Coast Living 7/4/2012 11:00:10 PM

I am half Italian and you can usually tell it with my love for carbs, pasta sauce, and so many other Italian dishes.  Today I want to share with you one of my favorite snacks that is probably one of the easiest things outside of grabbing a bag of chips....Bruschetta.  

I headed to the store to pick up my supplies.  Instead of the loaf I usually pick up for this dish I went a little different route and picked up some King's Hawaiin Dinner rolls and some tomatoes.  The rest of the ingredients I had at home.


Then I got to making.  Check out the recipe I use (please note there are no measurements because I do a lot of eyeball cooking, advanced apologies).

  • Roma Tomatoes
  • Minced Garlic (sometimes I use fresh but I was in a hurry so jarred it was)
  • Basil (fresh or dry)
  • Salt, Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • King's Hawaiin dinner rolls (sliced in half)


  1. Broil King's Hawaiin rolls just so they brown on top
  2. Roughly chop tomatoes and put into bowl juice and all. Make them as small or as big as you would like.
  3. Add garlic, basil, salt, and pepper to taste.
  4. Add olive oil and mix.
  5. Scoop spoonful on top of dinner roll and eat immediately.


This is absolutely one of the easiest appetizers and/or side dishes I make and it is such a hit with family and friends.  Try it out today or when you have your next Italian dinner night.  It goes great with pasta.

I love to share this tasty snack with friends and family.  What is your favorite dish to share with the family?  Comment below and you'll be entered to win a $200 Grocery gift card King’s Hawaiian.

My favorite dish to share is Lasagna, I personally prefer the vegetarian version but my Husband refuses to eat 55% of the vegetable ingredients so its simpler to make a standard version!
