Champagne Thursday Part 1

22 Apr

Champagne Thursday! I’m made:

Bruschetta with basil butter

For the basil butter –

1/2 a bunch of fresh basil

Extra virgin olive oil

1 garlic clove

2 TBS Parmesan cheese

Salt and Pepper

4 TBS of butter (unsalted)

Eight pieces of sliced bread of your choice

Put all the ingredients in the food processor and pulse until combined! You’ll have to scrape the sides down. Feel free to add red pepper flakes or some additional dried herbs if you want. I kept it simple for the bruschetta.

I marinated quartered cherry tomatoes and marinated them overnight with a minced clove of garlic, a splash of balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and a few pinches of herbs de provence.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. You can use lots of types of bread (I used a Tuscan Pane). Put the bread in the oven for about 10 minutes. Put the tomato mixture on the bread after 10 minutes and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake until toasted. Sprinkle with more extra virgin olive oil and salt/pepper if you want. Serve hot!
